shooting star ZIG ZAGS seaside oregon

at all nighter beach bonfire in seaside oregon 4 years ago or so.

while facing west towards the ocean, a SHOOTING STAR makes "Z" from north to south.

before i could say 'holy crap' it "Z"s back to the original position, backtracking south to north.

i never saw the craft, just the atmosphere/plasma light. brightness intensity was like a faint shooting star.

i have seen a space shuttle re-enter the atmosphere in Texas. that looked like magnesium burning. this was faint.

went across about 20 degrees of sky.

i have heard meteors can 'bounce' off the atmosphere. this looked like pinball.
