Shape: Circle
Duration:15 minutes
I saw what appeared to be a moving star, but stopped andchanged speeds noticeably, and finally direction.

I was sitting on my car, smoking a cigarrette on my smoke break at work. I looked up and saw what I first thought was a satellite, although it seemed to be too large, moving from due west to due east. I watched it for a total of 15 minutes, noticing the following events: Repetitively stopping and starting, speeding up and slowing down. A final stop, a pause, then a change of direction to the northwest. It then took off at a higher speed than any noticed before. I then got up because my break was over. I started walking inside the building, turned around to see if the object was still visible. It was not. The object was very high up in the atmosphere, if it was at all. Bluish-white color. Round shaped, resembled a star but no "twinkling."
