This report is about a light orb that has flown over me about 6 or 7 times now. This report is unique from the others in that the orb did something it has not done before that I could see anyway.

I was at work again on Oct. 3, 2017. It was 2040 hours and I was on a 25 minute layover and was outside. I was looking toward the West in the sky and i see a bright light approaching me high up. How high I am not sure. It seemed to be cloud level perhaps higher. But when i see the light it is very bright. This time it flies almost directly over me, but not quite, from a West to East direction. I see the light and zoom in on it with a powerful monocular I purchased. I see it is the same light orb I have seen previously. I take out my phone camera and start filming it. I get about 1 minute or so then my phone goes dead. I revert back to my monocular and watch the orb continue from West to East.

After a few minutes the orb dims somewhat. On previous occasions, the orb has traversed the sky till out of sight or veer in a different direction and on 2 occasions it disappeared as I watched it.  This time it did something it has not done before. It stopped. The orb came to a stop and ! sat in the same spot for at least 50 minutes. While I was watching it with the monocular as the orb was still, another light travelled past it perpendicular to the direction the stopped orb was travelling. The moving light moved south to north just below the stopped orb. 5 minutes later another light did the same thing. I don't know what those lights were.  If you were to look at the orb that stopped it would appear as a star had you not seen it cross the sky. I phoned my wife in excitement and some nervousness and told her what I was looking at. I then filed the report.

Conditions in sky were clear with some high cloud cover. No real wind that I noticed. No sound from object, no trail left behind.  The color of the orb was a bright white light that later dimmed before coming to a stop. The color if the 2 other lights that crossed the stopped orb were dim white as well.

I am a male, 50 years old, married 25 tears with 2 children. I have a University degree and 2 college diplomas and work full time.
