Shape: Light
Duration:approx 12 sex
a star-like light traveling in a zig-zag pattern at the speed of light.

the date I am not sure of but is was the night that a lunar eclipse occured during the summer of '82 and occured in the early morining hours of eclipse. looking west-slightly west-northward, i noticed what seemed like a falling star at first, then continuing to look, I had seen what looked like a star moving southernly, very, very fast, like in an instant. it seemed like it was among the stars, like one of the stars with medium to bright in intensity and looked just like a star, white in color. It has stopped, then continued to move in a zig-zag pattern traveling from south to west. when i first noticed it would go from point to point with a complete stop between points, then traveled in same pattern/direction non-stop until out of sight.

the sky was clear with stars. the speed of this object was incredible!....I had a thought that it was masquerading as a star so it would not be noticed. I was wide awake taking photos of the moon. I would have taken a photo if it wasn't over so soon.
