"Satellites" dance in the night sky.

It was a very clear night in Olympia, Washington. What appeared to be, at first, several different satellites moving across the sky.

One appeared. Then, I spotted another from a completely different location.

I am familiar with seeing satellites in the night sky, but I came to realize these were not satellites.

Satellites are easy to spot. They always move in one single direction orbiting at an even pace in relativity to the Earth’s rotation.

Several minutes later, I spotted more of them. Only thing was, some of them began to slow down. One even came to a complete stop.

I could hardly believe my eyes as I watched several of these objects slow down, speed up, stop, and even change directions. It was truly amazing to watch. This "dance" of objects way up high only lasted for a few minutes.

From what I could tell, the objects simply disappeared. I searched the skies but no moving objects could be spotted again later that night.
