Shape: Light
Duration:1 min. 30 sec.
A bright star type of object, with controlled movement, that came to a stop then vanished.

While I was looking at the stars over my home,(i was facing south) I happened onto Orions Belt. I started to scan the sky to the west, when I saw a bright object moving towards Orions Belt. At first I thought it was just some space junk.

Then it stopped. It backed tracked,to the west, then it went south, stopped, then north, then it went to where where it first stopped, then continued on its original path. It was heading for orions belt. Just to the northwest of the belt there is twin stars, they are faint, but you can see them with the naked eye.

As the objrct neared these stars, it stopped again.

But this time it got faint then it was gone.
