I was sitting on porch approximately 10pm looking east at sky while smoking before bed. After a few minutes a light appeared next to lowest star on Orians belt. It hovered there a few seconds before traveling slowly straight up along the stars of the belt. When it reached the northern most star on the belt it stopped again for only a few seconds and still had the same bright light that I first saw. Then the light shot of in the NE direction at an incredible speed across the sky until the light just vanished. I've watched the sky my whole life and this is my first sighting of a UFO. I know what I saw was nothing man made.
