... it appeared to change shape, like the front half had slowed down
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma - 10-07-14
Shape: Changing - Duration: 4 minutes
Just after 12:30 on my lunch hour I had gone outside to the designated area to smoke. I turn to the northeastern part of the sky and see this cylinder-shaped object moving at a slow speed from north to south.
It's about the size of a quarter at armís length and pure white in color. When it got just past halfway middle of the sky it appeared to change shape, like the front half had slowed down and the back end had to catch up and it had a more cigar shape.
Its direction changed to a slow arc toward the sun. Then in an instant it starts to shape shift probably because the sun was reflecting off of different surfaces; it gave the appearance of rapid movement back and forth and from side to side violently.
It would appear in one spot then disappear and instantaneously appear in another spot near to where it previously was then again and again and again maybe 7 or 8 times looked like it had a different shape each time while continuing in the same direction.
Then it shifted 3 or 4 times more, only less rapid and growing brighter as it approaches the sun. It stops at a distance of about a dime held at armís length from the sun and by this time is as bright as the sun like a mirror held up to it, only much smaller.
It stays in that place for about five to six seconds then it appears to back away a little and all of a sudden it's not glowing any more, it is still close to the sun and should be still glowing but it's not, it has stopped reflecting any sunlight at all and become a darker greyish color thin horizontal bar shape.
It was much less visible than when I first saw it, but could still be seen. It held that position briefly, then it punches out, to a dot in the sky then gone.
