Staring at the sky as i normally do on the weekends, it was a partially cloudy night with large cumulus clouds with clear breaks between the clouds. after about an hour of observation i saw the following; a white light seemed to enter the atmosphere, directly downwards. it became brighter just as you would expect a meteor to do. it carried on down really fast and at around cloud level it stopped, the light went out, and i assumed "yep, that's a meteor." after about 2 seconds or so, however, the light reappeared, as bright as any aircraft light would be but it was solid white. as soon as it reappeared it darted off to the right to the edge of a cloud, and appeared to stop again and disappear. i didn't see it again. from first entering to when it stopped was around 70degs to 45 degs on the sky. when it moved the second time it travelled around 5 degs on sky. this was my first ever unexplained sighting. i can normally put things i see in the sky down to drones, satellites, planes, helicopters, etc. this was new.
