U.F.O or a wandering star?

I work in a chemical plant. So there is no smoking on the property. When break time came, The night shift supervisor and I stepped out side the property gate to have a smoke. Since a kid, I have always dreamed about space. That night the sky was totaly clear. So as I was smoking my cigarette, I was looking up at the stars. I noticed one star more than the others.It looked like it was moving.So I told the night supervisor to look.When he got his eye on it, it was moving. At that time It was moving at a good speed. It looked like maybe it could be a shooting star. Until it stopped moving.Then I knew it had to be something else.So I asked the night shift supervisor what he thought it could be. When he started to answer, It started to move again. We were trying to keep an eye on it, But there were trees soon to be in the way.But that didnt matter. It was like someone turned a switch off. It was gone. What it looked like was a star. It was bright with a little flicker. It was the coolest thing I ever saw. Like I said, It looked like a star at first. But then it started to move. Now, I have seen shooting stars before. This was not a shooting star. Ther was no trail behind it. And as far as i know, shooting stars dont just stop.
