Shape: Light
Duration:2 seconds
Single light moving very fast, zig-sagged, stopped, vanished in 2-3 seconds

At exactly 7:40 pm cdt I looked up in the sky because something moving very fast caught my eye. It looked like a regular star, a single white light, moving about 20 times faster than a jet airplane. In an instant it zigzagged/ (wobbled??) about 5-10 times, stopped, and shot straight up into space without making a sound. I asked a guy who I know and was 2-3 feet from me if he saw it. He had not.

The sky was clear, perfect weather, and this was in the north-north east sky.

I have never seen anything like this. Shooting stars don't zig zag as far as I know because I've seen them.

I'm a man in his early fifties, don't drink, doe drugs, or anything that would have distorted my perception. This entire incident lasted about 2-3 seconds at the longest n
