|8/14 clay county florida, moving light (star)
We were lying on a blanket watching the stars. I noted one star that was particularly bright. As I watched it; the "star" moved it travelled diagnally in a northwest direction (stopped for about 10 seconds then moved back. It then moved again in a lateral move toward the west. (stopped) moved back. The movements were obvious, deliberate and seemed to have moved in several directions as discribed above at least ten times. I am not a mathematician and cannot tell you how many degrees it moved. I can only say, that if one were looking up at the stars above it would move what seemed to be a foot or two from its posistion. We watched until my teenage grandaughter becames so afraid She ran into the cabin. I went in to comfort her. Do satellites move like this. Just curious. What I saw was not a star. Looking to the sky on that very clear night it just looked like a star brighter than the others. It seemed to be the same plane as the other stars. Just thought I would report. More for the reason that I would like to know if we can see satellites with the naked eye in the night sky and do they move like the above described.
