Very Bright Light In the Sky Making Unusual Movements

On the morning of July 16, 2007, at approximately 4:15 a.m. my husband stepped outside of our apartment to smoke a cigarette. He spotted a large, luminous, bright moving object. It zoomed in one direction and then immediately made a u-turn back towards where it came from, however, it zoomed in a more southward direction. He frantically called me from my slumber and I stepped out on the balcony and witnessed a very bright light that zoomed to the left. We did not hear the object make a single noise. This phenomenon took place for approximately 10-15 seconds. Although we could not estimate the altitude, it did not seem to be flying very high. In fact, our view of the object was blocked because of the numerous trees that surround our area. Although it is more difficult to estimate distance and size at night, the object could not have been far away because the light was very bright and noticeable. According to my husband, the light mimicked the movement made by a ping-pong ball. At one point, the light became brighter and after that we lost sight of it. In my opinion, neither a plane nor a helicopter would have been so silent had they been so close. I do not believe that a plane is capable of making such movements.
