Light seen moving erratically above cloud layer through NVGs. Gulf Shores AL

While on the beach using a PVS-7 NVG, I was looking at the stars when I noticed what I thought was a satellite moving across the sky. It was going about as fast as a typical satellite and then stopped and loitered in one position for about 3 seconds and then redirected about 45 degrees and continued for a short distance then stopped again for about 3 seconds. It repeated this a few more times, each time moving straight a short distance in a random direction and then stopping completely. It was above cloud height at minimum as I saw it disappear behind some clouds. This all lasted about 15 seconds total before I lost it behind clouds that were moving in. It only looked like a dim light through my NVGs and I couldn’t discern any shape due to distance.
