|star shaped moving south to west in straight, and up and down direction flashing and growing to return to star like self
In the southern sky I seen a star like obj.(same shape, size and color) moving toward the west, sometimes straight and then up and down and then back to straight, half way into the siteing it grew very bright white, while growing to basketball size, flashing like it was going to explode and then returned to its star like self in size, shape and color. When I returned in a minute or so from waking another in the house to see this, it was gone. I continued to search in all directions in the sky, but seen nothing like it or have ever seen anything like it before. The whole siting lasted a minute or so. It was a clear night with many stars. I am not in the star field, but do gaze upon the sky often, but have never seen anything like this before, I have seen shooting stars and the northern lights and it was not like that.
((NUFORC Note: Object could not have been a satellite, and it almost certainly could not have been a meteor. PD))
