Shape: Light
Duration:~1 minute
Light as bright as a normal star/satellite. Appeared and disappeared as it travelled northward

Witnesses observed an object at high altitude procede from south to north +/- traveling at a speed similar to observed satelites this object appeared to vary its course from left to right and back. It also went out and came back on as It traveled NW. Perhaps a meteor skipping off the atmosphere? There were no other lights on the object. Thought it was a satellite at first except that it appeared to vary its course left and right and would "go out" and come back on later on its generally northward trajectory. It went out at about a 35 degree azimuth to the north and did not reappear. It originally appeared at about a 20 degree azimuth to the south. It did not exhibit normal aircraft lighting characteristics.
