seen object with telescope moving in a circular motion relitive to the size of a thumbnail

spoted object while viewing sky with low power lens connewcted to a 12 inch telescope. its size was relative to star circling around at a high rate of speed in an area the size of a thumb nail. at first i thought it could be a satilite until it stopped for a minute then sped across the sky. i had lost sight of object within telescope range. i searched sky with a pair of binoculars but to no avail. i have been viewing the skys for 50 years and have never seen anything like this. i did manage to take several shots with digital camera fixed to telescope. i am interested in seeing the shot of this object trailing across sky.as far as its distance from earth it appears as though it was about a mile or so high although it is difficult to say. cant wait til tonite


((NUFORC Note: Clearly, the object was not a satellite. We suspect a star was the cause of the sighting. PD))
