Orbital object over N. Alabama that twice came to stop and made sudden course corrections

While star watching and satellite spotting, an orbital object passed over Blount County Alabama, from a heading of 324 degrees NW towards the SE at 144 degrees. The object had a luminosity about half as bright at the ISS and was moving at typical satellite speed. Twice the object came to complete stop in its path, made a large arc course correction, then continued on its SE trajectory until out of view over horizon.
