Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Light with irregular flight pattern inconsistent for plane, sattelite or helicopter.

On Monday December 23 at approximately 5:30 I was out on my porch facing due East when I observed a light brighter than a star and about the size of a planet with an irregular flight pattern. The object I observed was at high altitude and went in, behind and or out of clouds. The course of the object appeared random with small, distinct, directional changes, during which there was a slight increase in speed. This movement to me seemed out of proportion with what would be possible for a helicopter. The altitude also was more consistent with an airplane or even a satellite. At first I thought it was a satellite because the vividness of it and its speed was similar; however I have never seen the type of directional changes I observed from a satellite, plane or helicopter. It was very cold outside so I went back inside after about 5 minutes.
