White, round light with white tail moving quickly, but sporadically.

Approximately 4:20 AM, I was in front of my house having a non-sleeping smoke. A light caught my eye in the sky and it was much closer than a star. More like an airplane traveling over the city at highest altitude.

Upon observing it, I noticed that this solid, white light was moving forward quickly, but in jerking motions forward, then one side to the other, then every now and then it would move backward, only to go forward again. At times, it would stop completely, then move in tiny circular motions. It was stationary for approximately 5 minutes, then moved forward and then backward.

My house faces due west and it was traveling from the west to the east. As it came more overhead, at this time about a 90 degree angle, I began noticing a straight line extending from the white, round base that was also a solid white. I called Nellis Air Force Base and they gave me your phone number. I have left a message for you on the phone number that the Air Force Base gave me.

Before signing off, I just went out to check it again. It is still in one place, but bouncing around in an almost jerky, circular pattern. I can still see the line of white protruding from the circular base.
