Summary : Helix flight pattern at zenith

I think it was 1954 - Summer - camping with the Boy Scouts. I saw an object very high up and near the zenith which was a point of light which performed a helix flight pattern (approximately west to east). It was only visible across a restricted arc of the sky in spite of no celestial or terrestrial obstructions.
