13 Feb 2009, White spherical object revolving around its own axis having a random motion viewed from Chennai

My nephew and me were just watching towards the eastern sky in our terrace, which was clear and the moon shining bright. As were gazing I observed a star moving in random motion at a frantic pace. I just ask him to look at it just to check if it was am illusion or not. He too observed the same and also other 5 members of our family too.

To our naked eye it was like a star shining with small red illumination and moving at a differential pace randomly within a constrained space, so we took a binocular and checked it around. On magnification what we saw, it was a white spherical mass revolving in its own axis and moving randomly, in the beginning it was moving at rapid pace in a random motion within a constrained area, when ever it came away from that constrained area it started to pull back again into its own circumference.

As time progressed its pace took off and then it vanished just like that in no time. We observed this activity from 22:14 to 23:47 IST on 13 Feb 2009, Chennai India.
