Shape: Other
Duration:8-9 seconds
a point of light, like a satellite, transiting the sky east to west, made abrupt directional changes that seemed to defy physics.

On the evening of Monday, May 13, 2019, in New Orleans, LA, I was facing south/southeast, watching what appeared to be a satellite or the space station transit the sky, east to west, passing almost across the face of the moon (a solid point of light, not blinking, traveling much faster than an airplane, I have witnessed these events many times before) when it made an abrupt turn down and to the right, then back on its original track, before making an equally abrupt turn up and then off on a track perpendicular to the original path. I’ve been watching the night sky since 1987 and have never seen anything like this prior to last night .
