Moving star

I went outside to smoke a ciggarette when a nearby helicopter caught my eye because if its sound. It must have been pretty low. As I watched the helicopter pass by, I caught a glimpse of what I thought was a plane headed toward me from the opposite location. It was was brighter than the other stars in the sky, but it looked just like a star. I questioned myself about the speed of the object. I was giong really fast for a plane. Easy to follow with eye, but faster than a plane. Also, the flight path was unique as it changed direction from southbound to northbound. This only lasted maybe 30 seconds then the object stopped. It just sat stationary like a star. It also looked just like one, but brighter. I sat there and stared at it for twenty minutes or so. No more movement. I went inside and have been checking on it. Still there. It has been over an hour since I saw it moving. I am blown away. I have found many other accounts like mine on the net. Skeptics explanations do not account for what I have just wittnessed. I hear unexplained frequencies and metallic noises during odd hours (1-5 AM)and I have experianced purple ball lightning near where I live several years back (i can elaborate upon request, it was amazing, there was witnesses), perhaps there is something of cosmic interest in the area.
