I was walking down the street with a witness, on a moonless and stary night. i looked directly up and told the witness to look up as i saw a light moving in a straight line. the light was about as bright as the brightest star in the sky at the time. i saw it moving in the northeast direction. i immediately looked behind me to check if there were any cars coming because we were standing in the middle of the street. i looked back up at the light, and suddenly it was traveling in the exact opposite direction as it was previously. i looked behind me again for cars, and told the witness that we should probably get to the sidewalk. by the time i got to the sidewalk, which maybe took 3 seconds, i looked back up and it was gone. the whole sighting probably lasted 10 seconds, but i only say the ufo itself for about 5 seconds. there were visible planes in the area so we were pretty sure it wasn't a plane. both the witness and i saw shooting stars not long after the sighting, but they didn't look like the light that we saw.
