White light moving across sky that stopped and stayed still.As I was leaving a convenience store, I looked to the sky, wondering if the storm we’d been having might pass and the weather improve by morning. There was solid cloud cover, and it was raining, as it had been for hours. Then I saw what I first thought was a star, and figured for a second that there was a break in the clouds. I quickly realized the light that looked like a star was moving at a steady, fairly brisk speed, heading south to north.I first thought it must be an airliner, as it seemed high enough and fast enough that it couldn’t be a small plane. It was only a steady white light, looking much like a star. If it were a plane, I thought it would have the typical flashing lights; this did not. Then I thought it may be a satellite, but I thought a satellite would be at a much higher altitude, above the cloud cover. Then the object just stopped and stayed stationary. It didn’t take time to slow, it was moving then it stopped suddenly. I watched it for about 5 more minutes before getting in out of the rain and heading home. For the entire time I watched the light, it was clearly visible. I was not up into the cloud cover at all.I am unable to explain what kind of object would be able to be that high, move that fast, be able to stop that suddenly, then stay perfectly stationary.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information.
