We saw the moving star as well!!

I understand that reporting this so far from the date it occurred may discredit it, but I just couldn't help myself after seeing the sighting posting for 8/12/2008 at 23:30.

Around 11pm on that night my brother was taking the dog out to use the bathroom before going to bed. What he described as happening was that out of the corner of his eye he caught what he thought was a meteor or a bright shooting star that just simply stopped above the house (so to speak). He said that he looked at it for less than a minute trying to figure out what he just saw, when what appeared to be a star in the same area moved in a circle. My brother then called me, so I went outside and looked but failed to see what he was (mind you I live only about a mile away from him). At this point I drove over to his house and had him point out what I was looking for. The "star" didn't move for about 5 minutes, and after ridiculing him for getting me out of bed, the "star" moved EXACTLY like he said, as well as what was described in the other report this is pertaining to. We watched it for roughly an hour just occasionally moving in a circle, side to side, or in that kind of hook shape that was mentioned in the other report. It never even occurred to me to report the event because we all felt like we were a little crazy or just seeing things. It honestly just looked like your average star.
