I was leaving home at 6:15 while still darkand was looking at the dark skyi figured I would try to take a picture of the sky when I saw a shooting star going away from the big dipper. Bit bigger than a star but smaller and less bright than Venus. When it stopped pulsated and changed its path back to the big dipper where it stayed around the dipper handle. Then it started moving away in its previous direction. Not fast, slowly from my point fo view, I could imagine the velocity required to cover that distance would be incredible. As it moved away from the handle I lost it, and the camera is all black.
