Duration:15 mins
an object the size and brightness of a star was seen zig zagging over South Yorkshire , before moving out of view.

The sky was very clear.In the area of the plough (big dipper) star formation we noticed what looked like another star, which was moving. It was roughly the same size as the other stars in the formation. It was changing direction and eventually moved out of sight. At first I though it may have been a satelite but it was changing direction so much it had to be controlled. When I've seen satelites before their speed across the sky was similar to this object.
