** my original date was incorrect. This happened on 08/14/18**

I noticed what I thought was a satellite but it was not moving as a satellite should. I observed it for a minute or so flitting in a pattern that an aircraft would not move. It moved like I imagine an amateur drone user would.

I pointed it out to my husband who also witnessed the same pattern. We called our girls outside, 13 & 12 years old, they also were confirming what we saw.

After about an hour, I called my parents and brother who live about 3000 feet due north of us and my brother also saw the same pattern.

This was an object that looked like a bright star or satellite that moved in a pattern not consistent with a fixed wing or rotary aircraft for over an hour in the same general area.
