Location: Fayetteville (outside of), AR
Shape: Light
Duration:10-15 sec
Witnessed a object, first mistaken as satalite, until it changed direction.

Myself and a friend were riding my ATV when I stopped to smoke a cigarette, We sat and talked as we watched the large cumulus-nimbus clouds roll west towards the horizen ,leaving clear sky behind them. I pointed out the north star, then turned. In the south-east sky I noticed a small white light moving quikly south-east, I pointed it out to my friend and told her that it was a satilite, as I have seen many of them on clear nights. I had just pointed it out when it suddenly made a 90 degree left turn. Which suprised me, because I have never seen a satalite make a 90 degree turn. At that point the object slowed to a stop. Then, took back off in the same direction, north I believe, then slowed to a stop again before fading into darkness.
