disappearing/reappearing dot in the sky, going down.

At around 9 o’clock PM CT, I was outside enjoying the night air with my sister and looking up at the sky. Surprisingly, we could see a lot of stars. Even more surprisingly, I saw what I thought was a falling star. It was circular and white.

It looked like it was falling straight down, but when I followed it with my eyes for a few seconds, it disappeared - not something your average meteor does! And then, a moment later, it reappeared, lower than before, and kept falling. I was very excited, and pointed it out to my sister, who quickly saw it. It was too far away (sadly too far away to film or take a picture of) and going too fast to be a plane, or anything like that.

It disappeared again, and this time I counted. It was 4 seconds, and then it would reappear for 4 more seconds, and then disappear once more. This went on for a good 15 seconds, and then whatever it was disappeared from our view, behind some trees.
