Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
I live about 7 miles west of Bozeman, Mt., and on the night of Feb. 21, 2015, I went outside to get some firewood. It was a clear night, and I often look at the sky, since I had several sightings in 1963 and have always hoped for another.

I looked toward Bozeman (east), and I saw a single white light moving west to east, and I immediately thought that it was a satellite. It was high and travelling fairly fast. I kept watching it, and suddenly it made an "S" turn in the direction it was travelling, and then it stopped completely. It was too high for a helicopter, and travelling too fast initially to be one.

I watched for about 10 minutes, and it didn't move. It was cold out, and I didn't have a coat on, so I went inside to get one, and when I went back outside it was not there, or did not appear to be there.

The objects we (several witnesses, several times) saw near Dillon, Montana, in 1963 were also single bright white lights, but they could make right angle turns without slowing and stopped on a dime also.
