Location: Orange Beach, AL
Shape: Circle
Duration:20 seconds
Star shaped shot across sky, stopped briefly and then shot back in the same direction as it came very fast.

My wife and I were sitting on the beach looking at shooting stars. I saw what I thought was a bright star shooting across the sky. It looked like other stars but was bigger and brighter. As I was watching, what I thought was a star suddenly stopped. It stayed in a stationary position for about 5 seconds and shot back in the direction that it came from at a high rate of speed and was out of sight in about 3 seconds.

I looked at my wife and she asked me if I saw something in the sky. I didn't tell her what I saw at that moment because I wanted to hear her describe what she saw. It was exactly the same thing that I had seen.

I'm not saying it was a spacecraft but I have no idea what it was.
