I walked out of my door and looked up at the moon and saw the object moving from the south to the northeast. It was a large bright light and it had a slight zig zag pattern; no sound, no emission. Stopped and hovered and then continued northeast.

I walked out of my door and looked up at the moon and saw the object moving from the south to the northeast. It was a large bright light and it had a slight zig zag pattern; no sound, no emission. It stopped and hovered and then continued northeast. Definitely wasn't a plane and I have been watching the skies for years, so I know what a satellite looks like and this was not a satellite. Right away it looked unusually large and bright. The way it moved was too fast for any known aircraft at the altitude it was at. It actually scared my son. It faded when it went behind some mild clouds but then became bright again when it came out of the clouds. It seemed to react to our excitement as at the peak of our amazement and conversation it stopped and almost looked like it got brighter, as if it was moving towards us. When my young son started getting scared and began to cry a bit it started moving away from us again. It continued northeast until we lost sight of it over the horizon.
