Full Description of event/sighting: I was on my back deck observing the meteor shower. I was facing east/northeast. At approximately 1:00am, I observed a flashing light coming from the north. I expected it to be an airplane, but it was moving at an extremely high rate of speed, going from north to south in about 3 seconds. It was a very bright, strobe-like light, brighter than any light on a plane. It moved far faster than any plane, emitting no sound, and much faster than any satellite, which takes a few minutes to cross the sky as well as the fact that satellites don't blink on and off. As it got to the south it stopped and moved back north slightly. Then it did one of two things, being unable to distinguish because of the bright flashing. It moved slightly west and then either (A) did a 360 degree circle back to its original location or (B) did a series of 90 degree moves, moving down, over to the right, up and then left, back to its original location. This move was done in approximately 1-1/2 to 2 seconds.
It then moved south again, and I lost sight of it due to a dense tree-line. It moved way too fast to be any man-made aircraft, as well as it is impossible for any man-made craft to do the maneuver I observed before losing sight of it. It was not a meteor, moving slower than any meteor I have ever observed, beside the fact I know of no meteor that has ever stopped and reversed its track. It also was not a meteor skipping in and out of the atmosphere, as the flashing had a distinct timed pattern to it. I was ready to dismiss it as "seeing things" until it pulled that last move. I have never observed any object do what this object did (the circle/90 degree moves) in the brief time period it did it in. It's not physically possible for any man-made object to move in the fashion this object did. Because of the briefness of this event (happened in about 10-12 seconds), it was impossible to determine an altitude, although it definitely was not a "tree skimming" height -- was definitely much higher than that. Also unable to determine any shape or size of the object.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
