|Small Orange-White "star" that moves around in circles, up, down, and sideways fast in the night sky
A few nights ago, and then again last night I noticed this thing that looks like an orange star, and it moves back and fourth, up and down, and swirls around. I just saw it again tonight. When I first saw it I thought it was a satellite, but then I realized it couldn't be because Earth made satellites don't move like that. It shows up around midnight and stays around until 4am or so. Its not out every night, but it has been out the past weekend.
I was going to film it myself, but its so blasted small I couldn't possibly find it though the lens of the camera in the night sky. This thing also fades in and out and vanishes every now and then, and then comes back a few minutes later. It shows up to the east, but closer to the middle of the sky.
I thought I was seeing things so I got my family and they also saw it and confirmed that it was actually moving around.
The area I live in is out in the middle of the woods so there is very little light contamination, and its dark enough to see.
