Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
zig zag patterned light

About 9:50 pm central time, i was outside smoking and i always look at the sky. I know all the flight patterns of the airplanes that always fly over head. I looked directly over head and saw a small light looking exactly like a star. i thought it was a shotting star so i watched it. it was moving pretty decent speed. the next thing i know it is taking a zig zag pattern very sudden sharp turns. It proceeded to make these patterns for about 15-20 seconds. It stopped a time or two then got dim but still visible but then dissapeared.
