Location: Fayetteville, AR
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 minutes
Satellite-like light was seen moving in various directions at a high rate of speed.

A friend and I watched a light that looked exactly like a fast moving satellite high in the Eastern sky. I pointed this object out to my friend and she also thought it was a satellite. As it reached the middle of the sky, it stopped moving. It stayed stationary for several seconds and then began to move backward along its original path. It then stopped after a few seconds and remained stationary. It then moved in an extremely tight circle and moved between 9 and 12 degrees lower in the sky within less than a second. It remained stationary for several minutes before clouds moved in and it became difficult to see the object.
