Shape: Sphere
Duration:3-4 minutes
Object meandered like a leaf in a stream.

Object 1st noticed between Pole star & 3-star triangle S.E. of Pole star. At 1st thought it to be a planet but realized it to be too far off the plane of the ecliptic. Object had a constant yellow-orange appearance. No whirling or color changes. I next thought it to be a stationary star till I realized it was moving too fast for an aircraft relative to other stars. Two observations: 1. It was moving in a South-east direction from the point of 1st notice. 2. It seemed to meander like a leaf floating along in a small stream that is affected by eddys.
