|Blinking star moves then shoots away like meteorite
On opening day of archery only deer season on my way to the deer blind I observed very bright "star" that didn't look quite right. It was the brightest object in the sky except for the moon. I watched this star as I walked along the road and noticed it blinked off. I decided that was definately not right. As I stopped and gazed more intently it came back on after about 30 seconds, then off after about a minute. It did this a few times before beginning to move! It's now moving toward the South-SouthWest. Without warning it shoots off to the SSW at incredible speed in an arc-like manner (in other words not in a straight line) I waited for it to return and it did not. Needless to say I was quite charged by the event.
