I watched what i thought was a satalite untill it stopped and stared to move eraticly across the sky

I was looking up at sky and observed what I thought to be a satalite moving north to south at a slow rate of speed. the object then stoped then moved left 2 inches.At this time I payed a little more attention to it.I went and got my binoculars and looked but at this point it still looked like a star.It then moved in reverse for five inches then stopped again.I got my telescope out (starwatcher)7 in lense x2.5mm and focused in. The object was round 1/16 in dia and was yellow in color. There was a small bright circle in the center with three black dots in the circle.This was followed by a black ring,bright ring,black ring,bright ring and a finale black ring. There was a bright aura around the edge of the object.Every so often the rings would change in to what looked like a spiral pattern. At his point I woke up my seven year old sun to come and take a look.He said it looked like a bullseye in the sky. The object would move around a area about 6 in in diameter then it finaly stopped and stayed stationary and moved with the rest of the stars crossing the sky.I found it interesting how the background sky would pass out of veiw as time went on but this just stayed put until it moved with the rest of the skyscape.I watched it until 02:00 when clouds coverd my view.
