Shape: Circle
Duration:30 minutes
Flying object seen making darting and odd manuevers for 30 minutes.

I was at the east bound exit ramp of hwy 40 and hwy 86. I casually looked up at the sky to see maybe the big dipper. I then notice what I thought was a shooting star but it travelled in a straight line for 5 seconds and came to a complete stop. It then started moving back and forth perpendicular to the origianl path. It did this oscillating motion for several minutes and the would make darting and hook like movements, erratic then settle down a little, then start up again. it proceed to my right. I tried to call several friends, I reached one and asked to go outside and look at the sky. I told where to look based on the bright stars in a vertical line. I told her to look to her left quite aways and look at the star by itself. I said what do you see. She said its moving up and down. I called other friends but by then it had receded. The event lasted about 30 minutes or so.
