Duration:30 sec.
Unusual movements observed of a bright object flying over the Houston skyline.

I was carpooling with two other teachers to the schools where we taught in NE Houston when this took place.

As I looked south from the car I was a passenger in travelling east on the 610 North Loop West I saw a very bright object moving north over south central Houston. It caught my attention because it was a very bright object and it did not appear to be a plane. Suddenly it stopped moving and sat still in the sky for two or three seconds. It then moved straight up and stopped again beneath a cloud formation. Next a light from the object projected up onto the cloud for a second and then was turned off. The object then shot up thru the cloud and I lost sight of the object.
