Location: Orange Beach, AL
Shape: Light
Duration: 15 min
Observed light at high altitude change directions in an impossible way.

Providing security on the beach after Hurricane Ivan, I was on the beach when it was becoming dark. I do not remember the exact time, but there was only one star in the sky, no lights from the beach due to lack of electricity and curfew. I was lying on my back on a ATV talking to a family member when I observed a light, or what looked more like an reflection of something large moving in an north western direction. I thought to myself, thats fast, and when the object immideatley moved in an more than 90 degree direction at the same speed, I hung up the phone. For the next 10 minuites I observed the object stop, move quickly to another location and stop. It appeared that the object was positioning itself. About this time the stars were very visible and it aligned itself with small adjustments to two other stars and seemd not to move again.
