Duration:3 hours
Yellowish circular object moving in same region of space for more than three hours.

On the night of May 19, 2016, I observed what I thought was a satellite moving cross the sky until the object ceased moving in the approximate region of the stars Altair and Tarazed. The object then began moving in a random zig-zag motion while staying in the same region of space.

I observed this for approximately 30 minutes before getting my camera to film and video tape the object.

Over the course of three hours I watched and took approximately 30 pictures and 10 minutes of video before clouds moved in and obscured my view. The object is circular and orange in color.

When magnifying the image the object takes on the color spectrum ranging from orange, yellow, green, and purple.
