Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
light moving shape of cross over South Padre Island blackest part of night

I was lying with my back on the beach, stargazing, and trying to catch shooting stars. Several were shooting out from the area of constellation Cassiopeia at the time.

A bright "star"--brighter than any in the constellation--appeared from nowhere in this area of the sky. It moved from this spot in the shape of a cross--up, down, returned to center, left, right, repeat, several times over about 30 seconds, then disappeared after returning to it's original location.

Second observation different but same location following night.
