Shape: Light
Duration:3-4 minutes
A light in the sky moving in a zig-zag pattern

At Approximately 7:50 pm four of us were playing with puppies in a neighbor's yard when one of the group shouted "look at this" and we all moved to the front of the yard for a better view. A bright starlike light was moving away from us. The light did not blink nor did it have any red marker lights like an aircraft, but the most unusual aspect of its movement was the fact that it was moving right to left as well as moving forward away from us. The lateral deviations were slight but very distinctive and apparent to the naked eye. The light was visible for 3 to 4 minutes before disappearing behind a stand of trees forming the horizon.
