|bright light stopping/starting and changing directions; east to west migration x 45 minutes before stopping
Saw what I thought was a bright star that was flickering, it was due southwest from my balcony from RT 54 area. After blinking about 20 times, it began to move VERY SLOWLY and it wasnt until then I realized it wasnt just a bright star. I said something to friend at that point and we both then watched it for over 40 minutes. Its movement was in east to west direction but it stopped and started many times over and with seemingly different velocities over 45 minute period and often made directional changes back/forth and up/down--with a gradual westerly progression as net effect. At 12:01 seemed to stop and not move again, still a bright light (brightest in this night sky). Would a satellite act like this?? NO trails, auras, sounds, beams or other objects. Several planes went by in this general direction much faster than this bright light.
