Duration: 7 minutes
|Irregularly moving silent light source in night sky.
Star gazing at 7:15pm EST 10-18-15, I spotted a white lighted moving object traveling North North West at 75-80 degrees off the horizon, that made no sound. At first I thought it was a slow moving satellite. 41 29 73 14.
It did the impossible. Moved in a consistent line a few degrees, one finger at arms length then abruptly stopped totally, and reversed its direction. Then came back and went varying directions, north, south, east, and west each time reversing its directions. At times it appeared to be hovering.
Not real bright but easily visible.
Iíve seen the Space Station several nights but it moved along in a consistent direction and pretty good speed. This was not as bright appeared smaller, and moved more slowly.
At one point it was moving with a pattern of repeating printed MMMMís, forming somewhat of a wave pattern.
Nothing I know of can maneuver in air in this manner with a sharp or reversing turn at the end of each run. Nothing.
Could have been an object buffeted by winds but very peculiar.
5-7 minutes duration of observation, then I stopped viewing. Ran for the computer to see what this might be.
