I thought I was watching a satelite, it disappeared, then reappeared in a different location, made a 180 and vanished.

Number 1, I'm not nuts. I thought I was seeing a satelite. It streaked across the sky like it was a satelite, then it "turned off". The "image" was gone. Then it re-appeared just slightly south of its original position, made an arching 180 degree turn and vanished again. The object was in the west-south-west sky between two stars on a vertical plain. I can point out the stars if you'd like, I don't know the names of the stars. There wasn't a tail. It didn't change colors, (by the way, it looked white from here.)it didn't hover and do all those things that TV shows. It came and left, that's it. (When I say it came, I should say that something was visible, it was fairly close as far as celestial things go.) The reason I was outside was to smoke a cigarette, bad habit. I just hope you take this seriously. I was going to call McChord but I think they would have had me locked-up. This is the second one I have seen, the first one being about 15 years ago, the other guy I was with thought it was weird and we left it at that. This was weird and I just wanted to let you know what I saw. Thank you for your time and considerartion. Mike Crawford PS - leave a naumber or message, I do work for a living, really - I'm not nuts!!!
