Location: Broken Arrow, OK
Shape: Light
Duration:47 minutes
A point of light that would move very fast then stop then move again changing directions and even reversing its course.

My wife and I saw a point of light similar to a star or satellite. After watching a few minutes, it would stop suddenly and completely, then it would suddenly move again at what seemed to be a very high rate of speed. When it started moving it would sometimes change its direction of travel and would even reverse its course. It would move only a few degrees with each movement but after a time it had traveled across half the sky.

When we first saw the light, it was near the left foot of the Orion constellation. Even though it was changing course, its general direction of travel was to the north. We have watched many airplanes and satellites travel in the night sky and this one moved like nothing we have ever seen.
