|Zig Zagging Point of light
My boyfriend and I were walking along the beach near Huntington Beach Pier and we were gazing at the stars. We noticed what we thought was a shooting star and watched as it darted across the epanse of the sky. This point of light then began to zig zag ever so slightly from its parabolic path. We also noticed a red blink, which led us to initially believe it might be a VERY high flying plane. Again, the light zig zagged from its path, then fell back into line.
From the time we began watching it from about the middle of the dome of the sky to our left horizon, the light took less than a minute to cross the sky (much, much more quickly than other planes in the sky at much lower altitudes.) We placed our "event time" estimation on the time it might have taken for the light to begin at one end of the sky to the other, prior to us watching.
