A bright white light speeding across a clear blue sky, suddenly stopping and then dissappearing.The object was or looked like a white spherical light, the sky was clear blue and the object I saw was very high up in the sky almost I would say on the edge of space. The object caught my eye as I looked up at the cloudless blue sky, what puzzled me was that it must have been travelling at thousands of miles an hour as it shot from the west to the east and did not even leave a con trail. The object came to sudden halt and then dissappeared just like that, from spotting the light in the sky to it dissappearing was about one and a half minutes.
