Star-like object reported in Natchitoches, LA seen previously in South Carolina

Sorry I do not have an exact date and time for this, but I was not aware of NUFORC at the time this happened. I would not have reported this at all if I had not read the sighting posted recently from Natchitoches, Louisiana on 1/24/03. I too have seen a star-like object in the eastern sky that suddenly begins to move toward the north.

I was standing on the deck behind my house about 9PM during the autumn of 2001 waiting for my dogs to come inside. I was looking at the eastern sky at a group of three stars when one of them started moving in a straight line toward the north. Considering the distance away of this object, it had to be moving quite fast but showed no signs of acceleration, that is, it did not start moving slowly and pick up speed. After approximately 10-15 seconds the object simply disappeared as though its light had been turned off.
