Bright white object seen zig-zagging across Northern Minnesota near Ely.

Sitting around a fire with my brother and one of my dad's old high school buddies, looking up at the stars and watching satellites, when a bright white object emerged in the sky traveling in a South to North direction.

The object was brighter than all the other stars in the sky and moved in zig-zags, sometimes stopping briefly after maneuver. In approximately 45 seconds, perhaps less, the object had already cleared the horizon; much faster than any satellite.

The object emitted white light and was considerably brighter than the brightest star. No discernible sound was heard. It appeared to be traveling at a high altitude.

I am writing this months later, but I am curious to find out if anyone else in the region can corroborate this experience.
