Description: I was on my way home and I saw a small drone like object about 5 meters above my head. I stopped to have a better look. At first I thought it was a children's toy, but it started moving at a medium pace out of any range that a children's toy would have. I looked around to see if there was anybody with a remote control, but there was nobody at all. I followed it and it kept hovering over me. It was small with green and red lights coming from it and it made a high pitch noise. It was rotating on an axis almost like it was observing it's surroundings. I thought this is weird so I got my phone and recorded it. Then suddenly after I stopped recording it shot up in the sky at unbelievable speeds out of sight.
Update - April 13, 2014 (More Witness Information): No, I have never seen anything like this before. It took about 6 seconds for it to fly into the atmosphere. I can accept that it is some sort of governmental drone, but it was just hovering over the bridge over the railway which just makes me think 'why'?
Note: This does appear to be some sort of flying drone. However, the abrupt departure vertically at unbelievable speeds casts some doubt on the "drone" explanation.
