Shape: Light
Duration:45 min.
Bright, light object moving in circular, zigzag and linear motions across sky.

At approximately 11:30pm Pacific Standard Time, my son and I were watching a lightning show, east of Bellevue, over the Cascade Mountains. Lying on our hammock, looking up, we noticed a light that appeared to be a bright satellite, but not moving in an orbit like direction. Instead, the light, the brightest in the sky, was moving in different patterns, linear and in a zigzag motion. A couple of times it moved in a clock, and counter-clockwise circular motion. The light appeared to change color from time to time. Fixing our eyes on nearby stars, the distance of the object was vividly increasing and decreasing its distance to those stars.
