light reversing directions silent - watched for ten minutes

This has stayed with me my entire life, I'm fifty now, I was seven when it happened. Up front, it was pretty anti climactic event, but it sticks because even at seven I knew what I was watching couldnt really be doing what it was doing.

My brother, myself, and a friend were sleeping out in the backyard as kids do, and spotted something very high moving in the night sky. It was silent, and clearly reversed directions numerous times, we watched for about ten minutes. It was a steady light. Yes it was the 4th of July, no it wasnt fireworks

Ive followed the ufo noise over the years as a result, I think 98% is bull.

No idea what we were watching -planes dont reverse directions and it was too high and silent for a helicopter.
