Craft was hovering in place over hangers, flew south-west and upwards faster than any commercial or military craft I've seen.

I was headed towards the airforce DFAC for midnight chow, the sky was dark so the timeframe was during the winter solstice - this event occurred on JBER, AK. When I noticed the craft, I pulled over to get a better view. It was disk-shaped, emitting a series of green lights across the middle. The lights switched to a bright yellow before zooming south-west towards Downtown Anchorage, and it seemingly disappeared as it elevated into the atmosphere, past the clouds. It did this in only a matter of seconds, the only "comparable" example would be shooting a tracer round at a target 300m away, scale that out and that's how fast and how far it went. The size could not be determined, it is unknown if it was a commercial drone or something else.
