Location: Rochester, NY
Shape: Circle
Duration:5 minutes
Very bright, star like object moving across the sky--backing up and making very sharp turns and circles.

I went to let the dog outside for the last time and I was looking at the stars. I noticed what I thought was an airplane moving very fast across the night sky, I followed it because it was moving so fast and there were no blinking lights on the bottom, when all of a sudden it stopped and moved in the opposite direction. It did not make a banked turn, it stopped and backed up. Then the object started to do circles in the sky, and sharp 10-15% turns. I watched for a while, then I got scared and went in the house.
