My husband and I had just said good bye to some guests outside our home. We looked up at a beautiful moon... when we noticed an object very high in the sky with a trail similar to a meteorite behind it but it moved from East to West with a periodically flashing light. My husband thought it was some kind of aircraft but it seemed to move very fast. When the object changed direction going south then west again almost perpendicular in movement. As we continued to watch it did it again... it did it 3 times while we watched it move across the sky.
