Shape: Light
Duration: 8 min

First I noticed a form of stars I never recognized shaped in the form of a capital slanted "M". I noticed not too long after that a light moving in the sky near it moving slowly from right to left but it had no flashing lights. The course it seemed to be on didn't look as if it had any intentions on landing. I watched this object for at least a min or 2 when I went to reach for my phone. I looked up after dialing a friend & it disappeared. I stared at the area to catch any sign of movement & there was nothing. I went inside to tell a associate of mine about it then decided to go back out onto the porch to see if it returned. I stood there for about 2-3 mins when I saw movement out the corner of my eye. It seemed to be the same light because it was coming from the direction the first disappeared in. The only difference this time is it gradually slowed down almost to a stop & when it picked up speed again it kind of went in a diagonal slant slowing, stopping & then going til it cloaked out near the M
