Bright light like space station but brighter and moving in strange ways unlike aircrafts

Today, that is Tuesday September 20th 2011 my girlfriend and I were on our way to the car from our apartment to go to work.

On the way to the car I looked up as I do often when the stars are showing but it was 6:33 and the sun was about to come up so there was only 2 showing, And I thought that one of the stars was Brighter than normal at that our in the morning, the other being the north star or whatever star is almost directly straight up (I just call it the north star because I thought that was supposed to be the brightest star but I'm to lazy to do the research).

I told my girlfriend to check it out... and she said I don't think that's a star i think its a plane or something because its moving....

I replied yeah it is moving isn't it?, but its to bright and its not blinking like airplane lights and it looks to high anyways maybe its the space station and somethings going on up there that's why its like testing that's why its so bright.

Now what happened next is something almost like what I always see on u tube videos when I look up UFO videos....

instead of just flying straight and really slow like the space station always does.... its speed increased, then slowed, then slowly increased again and started curving like a car would to take a corner going right at an intersection, i don't know how else to explain it because it didn't turn a little or alot, but then curved back the opposite it then faced when it took its right hand turn and curved in the shape i would compare with a car making if it was to do a u-turn like a perfect half circle then I lost track of it in what looked to me like above the clouds.

I Said to my girlfriend Wow that's not the space station did you see it turn like that? she said yeah its probably an airplane. I replied NO WAY, Airplanes don't turn like that they bank.. and they don't turn left and right and speed up and slow down, or have lights that bright, and besides, don't they blink? I really think We just saw a UFO. She laughed it off but I'm pretty convinced it was something.. I'm not saying little green men but I Am sure it wasn't an airplane or the space station... and not a star since we both say the same thing its not that we where getting dizzy looking up.

I wanted to call the airport and ask if there was something wrong with a plane or something but that sounded stupid.... so I called 411 to see if there was anyplace to report this kind of thing and she suggested the police department and connected me... but I couldnt see it behind the couds and I wasnt about to tell a police officer I thought I saw a UFO. So i asked my girlfriend to look up on google who you call if you see an unidentified flying object and she got your hotline so i left a message this morning.

I mean the whole experience probably was under 45 seconds.... It wasnt some long drawn out deal but it thought it might be important to tell somone I just wish i would have gotten it on video on my iphone, and still wish I had been able to talk to the airport and see if maybe some plane was flying manually in different directions or malfunctioning to explain the fluctuating speeds. Just thought I would tell SOMONE. So this is it I did and thats all I know and saw this morning.
