looking to the north I saw a orange colored object flying west.It changed directions to east,then back to west,then north where is dissappeard over the roofs of the houses.

It was obout 9:30 on Monday evening. I was outside of my house smoking a cigarette and was looking north into the sky (towards Canada). I noticed out of the corner of my eye a orange sort of light that was pulsing at a slow rate. The pulsing never went completely out just faded in and out. I watched this object as it traveled east to west. All of the sudden it came to almost a complete stop and went in the opposite direction (east), then almost stopped again and came back to the west. Then the object started moving in the direction of north towards Canada. I watched this for about 1 minute and 30 seconds before it dissappeared over the tops of the houses. It was not moving at a fast rate of speed, slower than an airplane would, I should know, many airplanes fly over our house all day long, and there was no red or white flashing lights, like the airplanes use at night, just the orange colored pulsing light. It was a bit larger than a star, and made no noise that I could here. This really caught my attention because of the half zig-zag it did in the sky.
