Duration: 5 minutes

Not a shooting star or an airplane.

My son and I were in the car driving to his bus stop. We saw what appeared to be a shooting star moving diagonally. Which was strange, because it was slower than other shooting stars I had seen previously, and moving in a diagonal fashion. Then it stopped, and just hovered, so I thought maybe it was an airplane... but it didn't move closer, it just stayed right there on the horizon. I wanted to watch it longer, but we had to move on. I kept looking back to see if it had moved, but it was still there on the horizon. Once we parked, I looked again, and it was gone. All I know, is that it was not a shooting star - maybe it was a satellite, but it most definitely was not an airplane.
