George, List:

This is obviously a garden veriety example of autokinetic motion
of the eye muscles. For an example, go outside tonight as soon
as it's dark and if the sky is clear look to the West for
brilliant Venus. Stare at it for a minute or so and you will see
the famous "falling leaf effect" of the last Allen Hynek. For
moving aircraft of satellites, this often appears as though the
object just stops, or sometimes reverses direction.

Clear skies,

Bob Young
