Bright light moved across the Northern sky and suddenly dissappeared

My dog (Shih Tzu mix) is on a very strict schedule. He usually doesnít go outside until 9 PM CST every night like clockwork, but on Monday, November 23rd he demanded to go outside at 6:12 PM.

I was admiring how clear of a night it was and looked Northeast towards Cassiopeia, and saw a bright light moving across the constellation. I first thought it was a plane, but planes donít typically look like a bright star, and planes usually move in one straight line. This light moved fast, but there was a slight wiggle to the line it moved in.

It moved in this wiggly line for about 15 seconds, before looking like it was absorbed or swallowed by the sky. Another thing that doesnít usually happen to planes. My dog had a case of the "zoomies" (hyperactivity) when I was watching the object. Which is odd for my super mellow older small dog.

Growing up in the country, Iím no stranger to stargazing and have never seen anything like it in my life. I immediately walked into the house and told my fiancť what had happened I was so shocked.

I wasnít expecting my dogís spontaneous potty break to be so eventful. I'm glad it happened when it did. I went out to get the mail 20 minutes later and the sky had completely clouded over.
