I was outside my camper and I was checking out the stars as they were starting to appear in the night sky. My attention was drawn to an object that had flared up (possibly reflecting sunlight?). At first I believed the object to be a satellite as I frequently observe satellites in the night sky in this remote area. After the object finished flaring up, I observed it as a very tiny pinpoint sized light. As I watched it, I noticed that it was making very quick, subtle changes in direction. I thought this might just be my eyes playing tricks on me. All of a sudden the object made a very fast change in its direction and covered a great distance. I knew then it was not my eyes playing tricks on me. I observed many more of these sudden directional changes as the object zig-zagged all around. The object then proceeded to head in a direction that took it north (with smaller zig-zags) until it disappeared over the trees. This was followed by two more objects that exhibited the same type of behavior. After these sightings, there was quite a bit of airline traffic coming into and leaving the (Rochester?) airport. This was followed by an unusually high number of satellites (very straight, quick, well-defined path). As I stated, I often sit out at night watching satellites go overhead and this is the first time in my life that I have ever seen anything as unusual as this. - The lights with the very fast changes in direction and speed were very, very dim. I would guess they were very far away.
