I witnessed unexplainable bright light with very strange movement in Spokane.

I witnessed unexplainable bright light movement in sky tonight. I live out in the country in South Spokane, and I went out past my yard and house to edge of woods to hear the owls.

I looked up at what I thought may be very bright plane or maybe satellite but the movement was like NOTHING I have ever seen before. This light was almost falling slowly in the north eastern part of the sky. Almost a 60-70• angle above horizon.

It would "fall" or orbit downward in a feather like trajectory, swaying from left to right slowly and then stopping perfectly still with no blinking lights or sound of any kind.

Then it would start up again never really following a pattern but seemingly heading downward toward the horizon. Then it just disappeared.

I have been a lifelong satellite watcher and can say it was a bit bigger or at least brighter but not much. It had absolutely no flashing lights and when planes or helicopters are that close there is sound.

Not sure what to think. Does ISS behave this way?
