Location: Branford, CT
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
White orb over Branford, CT and moving in sky between stars, not behaving like airplane nor shooting star.

We were stargazing with an iphone app when we noticed a circular ball of light, a light orb, that we assumed to be s planet moving somewhat quickly but quite far away. We couldnt capture video nor photo as it wouldnt show. We watched it fly southeasterly in a linear and sometimes zigzag pattern.

We live in a flight pattern area but it didn't fit the examples by direction, AND had only a white light, looking like the glow of a distant planet or a star orb rather than blinking airplane lights we are used to.

The movement was also zig zagged at times. It appeared to move between stars, north easterly then dropping southeasterly before disappearing suddenly. We watched, my daughter and I,in my backyard which faces a saltmarsh. We had been meditating then dabbling with playing CSETI tones when we witnessed this.
