Was outside, it was dark. was looking towards the south when i noticed what looked like a star. it started moving from right to left. i watched it as it moved around, until i was then facing towards the east. at first the light off it looked like a fire, flickering/pulsating. then as it kept moving it was more solid the further it got away from where i was standing. there was no noise, it was about the size of a baseball, maybe even a basketball. it would stop and then start again.
