meteor like object

The night of the sept 11th disasters, i went outside to verify that there were no aircraft flying. I saw a bright round light high in the sky above me. I thought it was a meteor at first. It was speeding in my direction when it stopped above me still high in the sky & hung there for a second then sped off to the south. I have seen many meteors & it was the same brightness. I had the eerie feeling it was reading me when it stopped for that second.
