A star sized object circled the sky and then shot straight out of sight at very great speed.
It was in the summer and I am not sure of the year, it could have been l958 or 1959.
I was outside and looked at the sky, which was full of stars.
I noticed that one of the stars was moving in a very large circle around the sky.
For as high as it must have been, it must have been moving at a great speed.
It continued this for a while and then it shot off straight out of sight at a much greater speed.
It was about the size of one of the stars, but brighter.
Other people outside saw it also.
I called the Civil Defense call line and found that it was busy for quite awhile.
When I finally got through, they said that they had many calls about the same thing.
