Shape: Light
Duration:7-10 min.
bright white light, I thought it was a star at first,circled the tri-cities area , moved very fast, and zig zaged several times at impossible angles in between blinking out completely.several times it just stood still then blinked out came back on and raced across sky.

This object was too far away to see shape.. it just looked like the brightest star out there.. it was a clear nite and at first I thought it was a meteor.. but then it began to make a large circle and zig zag then blink out and stop dead in the sky then blink back on and continue this large circle ove the tri cities.

.I first saw it in the east and it curved over to the north around to the west and south then back toward the east again before it blinked out the last time it had made a complete circle and I thought it was going to go around again. I went inside to tell friends what was happening but when we tried to find it again were unsucessful. this is actually the first time I've seen anything like this and am intrigued as to what it might be.. I'm hoping someone else may have seen it and could help me to understand what it was.There was no decernable sound and the whole thing lasted 10 min or less. there were no ru
