Location: Fort Wayne, IN
Shape: Light
Was clear sky and saw shimmering light (like a star) that appeared to move in many directions in short timeframes

Looked up at night sky and saw a light (looked like a shimmering star) in the western sky. It looked as if it might be moving so I watched it longer. It travelled to the West (about 3 hand widths). At this point I figured it was a satellite. However, then it moved to the North and then to the East and then sporadically in all directions (though only about 2 or 3 hand-widths at a time). I stayed watching it as long as I could (7 Mins?) before I retired for the evening. Never seen anything like it before.

((NUFORC Note: We do not know what the witness observed. Satellites only very rarely course to the west, and they never turn. PD))
