Duration:6 min
Bluish White Sphere slightly sporadic in movement

I went out to smoke. same as i always do and as i have done in past reports. this time i went to the back of my truck which was parked in my driveway because it blocks out some light so I can see the stars better.

I turned west to face my house and looked up. I saw something moving very slowly and it was fairly bright in the North West sky. I tried to focus on it and see if I could see lights thinking it was a plane. but all I saw was a bluish white glow. and it was moving rather oddly. it changed its path, moving slightly up and down and also in a circular way.

This time i wasted no time getting my mom who came ready with the binoculars. she also commented on it's weird movement. it began heading over a tree which was directly in front of me to the north. I saw a plane come into view just under the object. and it kind of curved it's path a little upward as if to avoid the plane's space. once passed it continued a little more odd movement then began to dim then finally disappear.

It was too slow to be a shooting star and left no trail. It could have been an asteroid but it looked to close in the sky from other asteroids i have observed. And coincidentally happened only hours on the same day of something else I saw in the sky in daylight that was strange and also had reported.
