Fast, looked bright, like a star but did not flicker, but instead moved. It moved from up and down and side to side quickly.I just got off work Saturday and happened to be looking at Orion's Belt. I didn't really think of it as being anything special at the time. Just another group of stars in the sky. I started to try to put together other constelations when I noticed a light in the sky. At first I thought it was just another star though I'd never noticed it before. I started to ignor it when I saw it was moving, thinking it was a plane, but realized it couldn't be.It moved oddly, to fast to be a plane and it was too bright, small, and it wasn't actually going anywhere. It continued to pretty well hover just below and to the left of Orion's Belt. I noticed it was making small swirling movements only to stop, not moving at all, then doing it again. I ran to my friend's house and dragged him outside. He noticed it was moving as well and ran back in to get another of our friends.We continued to watch it for another few minutes as it moved slightly, maybe an inch in the sky, though it covered that inch quickly. I'm not good at math but given the distance...I don't know. Planes just don't move like that, not in so many directions so quickly.We debated whether it really was moving or if we were all just seeing what we wanted to see. We decided to sit for a moment and watch. It did indeed move though only two of us could see it clearly. My other friend had just taken out his contacts so he couldn't say if it was moving or not. We did take a picture though we haven't yet decided if we are going to send it anywhere yet.I ran home to get a pair of binoculars but couldn't find any that allowed us to see it any better. After a while we gave up trying to see what it was and went back inside. When I left the house most of the stars were gone because it looks like a storm is rolling in. That was around 1 Am.I can't say anymore because my friends and I wish to remain anonomous. The only reason I'm sending this is because I have never seen anything like that in 12 years of traveling the United States, on vaction, or anywhere else. Nothing can cover such a distance in the sky like that and not be some kind of air ship or spacecraft. Whatever it was it seemed small, and fast.((NUFORC Note: Witness chooses to remain anonymous.
