Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
looked like a shooting star, but stars don't move that way.

This happened a while ago. It was my freshman year in college and I went to play some "midnight" basketball with some friends. The basketball courts where we were had enough lights for us to play. We were playing a full court game, when all of a sudden everyone playing basketball stopped and looked at the night sky. We saw a white tiny light. At first I thought it was a shooting start, but as it was soaring though the sky it stopped for a couple seconds, moved from left to right, and then shot right back from where it started and then disappeared. Someone stated that it may have been a satellite, but whatever it was, it scared the shit out of us cause we took off running back to the dorms.
