Circular light seen zig-zagging over Ft Worth on Sept. 2nd, 2001

While walking with my wife in Foster parkk this morning, I observed a circular white light moving across the sky in a southeasterly direction for approximately 15 seconds. It appeared to have a constant speed and at one point zigzagged (i.e. moved at the same relative speed to the East, then to the South, and then to the Southeast), and then proceeded in the direction that it was taking when I first observed it. I finally got my wife's attention and she observed the same object for approximately 5 seconds. We both watched it suddenly disappear. It did not have any characteristics belonging to those of a meteorite which I have seen many times. I have never seen anything like this in my entire life.
