Sighting Details

My son (age 28) spotted out his bedroom window. he came out and told what he saw as we both went to the living room window. we the ran out back on the porch but lost sight . so, we went out front door (n side of house) and located the object but at a greater distance and higher alt., tried to take picture with phone but no luck. i then call a neighbor so see could see it and she informed she had seen it earlier but being 74 and it’s -10 she shrugged off. i watch the object appear to move in s direction the it turned east before reversing . then while heading w it maneuvered in the shape of a large question mark. i looked at the clock when we lost sight and the time was 8:44 pm. i have been made aware of a rocket launch at poke flats north of Fairbanks at 8:55. my son multiple people witness the light and some got video. so, now i have to decide if it was two events or one. i checked when i called my neighbor and 8:44 was the time stamp.
