Location: Coeur d'Alene, ID
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
I saw what appeared to be a satellite, but then it stopped moving, then moved in several directions.

On August 24, 2008 at approximately 9 pm, I was on a dinner cruise on Lake Coeur D Alene, Idaho with my wife and another couple.

I was looking up at the stars and noticed what I thought was a satellite. This star light then stopped directly over head in the vicinity east - southeast of the big dipper.

It then moved in several directions, always returning to what appeared the original stopping point.

On two occasions, it grew very dim, then grew back to the original size. I am not sure if this was because it was moving farther away or lower below the horizon of the sunlight or earth shadow. I was telling my friend what I was seeing and he finally saw light move as well.
