Object was briefly stationary, before traveling in an apparent fish hook shape. Then vanished.

Had arrived outside my home at roughly 8:26 or 8:27pm on November the 5th, 2023. I had parked my car in the street, with the driver's side facing South. I had gathered my things and stepped outside my vehicle. When I closed the door, I had been facing south. A single, large orb of white light was spotted in the Southeast, above a neighbor's house. It appeared to be stationary. The orb then began to travel east, accelerating as it did. The object then made a fish hook maneuver down and then towards the West before vanishing from sight. There were no other witnesses present, and the entire event lasted less than a minute in length. Other than the sight of the object and the fish hook path it took, nothing else was deemed unusual.

Observer is a white male, in his early 30s. Does not have superstitious or supernatural proclivities. Has observed meteorological phenomenon in area before; including comets, meteor showers, and a shooting star. There are also several airports in the region, as well an FAA tech center. There is also occasional air traffic from Coast Guard aircraft.
