Location: Little Falls, MN
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Thought I saw a satellite right above me until it stopped and making turns in different directions.

Directly above. Thought it was a satellite until it stopped and moved almost opposite direction. Would stop periodically and change direction. This repeated for about 10 minutes above me. Then b-lined it northwest and made a L-turn west where it finally came to a stop and would move around and stop again and again like it did when it was above me. During this whole time it was changing colors from green, red, white, and yellow.

Also noticed 3 different aircraft moving towards it when the clouds started coming. My girlfriend saw it with me, I called my parents and they saw it.

I also called my brother who lives almost a half hour away and he didn't know what to think when he finally saw it after my directions on finding it. It was about in the 8 o'clock direction from the big dippers handle. It was very high in the sky. Like I said I thought it was a satellite but clearly it was not. I lost sight due to clouds moving in. I did take pictures with a 30 second shutter speed when it was out on the west until the clouds moved in.
