Shape: Light
Duration: 5 seconds
Fast bright light making "s" shaped turns back and forth

I don't know if anyone else saw this.

I saw what i thought was a falling star appearing from behind the tree line. it was travelling north. the light did not fade and i thought it may be a low flying satelite due to the speed. it abruptly turn west then back east then west again and then north bound again. the shape of the turn was a large "S" shape. the speed was much faster than commercial craft and the light was bright, like a bright star. i was stunned when the object deviated from the straight course. as soon as it made the first turn i thought something was strange, i had never seen something move like that before. there was no noise but i would guess the object was at about the same height that a commercial jet flys.
