say what?  It doesn't change direction.  It doesn't stop.  It doesn't 'fly' back - it simply 'fades' into view, staying exactly in the same place, then fades out again.  Looks EXACTLY like a satellite that has briefly caught the sun with its solar panels - eg Google Iridium Flare..  Note that it does NOT move relative to the camera - so we also know it's most likely a geostationary comm's satellite.

satellites visibly move i thought. I have seen a satellite with out camera moving, comes across my sky just before 12. why would the sun shine on it at random points, what would be in the way, unless satellite is spinning. think i need to look up geostationary satelites as i know zilch on the subject lol

I agree with Chrlzs. There is nothing there to make me believe it was anything but a satellite or maybe a meteor striking the atmosphere at an angle which sent it skipping into space.

A geosynretic satellite obits the world @ the same speed as the world. Satellite TV is boradcast from them.
At night (specifically not long after sunset) they appear in glowing, but fade away as the earths shadow covers them. They appear to move against stars, but are only moving with the earth @ the same rotational speed.

Perhaps it was a vagabond group of interstellar extraterrestrial beings searching for a galaxy gas station

UFO =/= ALIEN SPACECRAFT
( It would be nice if people knew the difference but sadly most people don't )

It's a satellite.
And it's spelled geosynchronous.
The period of orbit is approximately 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds so they stay at exactly the same spot above Earth. To do so they need a very high altitude orbit of approximately 22236 miles.  If sun is at the right angle they will glare like a mirror.

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

For the purposes of this discussion, yes, that's true enough.
But in fact a geosynchronous sat actually wanders a bit.. For anyone who wants to know why, try this explanation.

The two terms - geostationary and geosynchronous - tend to be (incorrectly) used interchangeably by Joe Public.  And to be honest, it probably doesn't matter all that much unless you truly are a rocket scientist..

All my posts about Apollo are dedicated to the memory of MID - who knew, lived and was an integral part of, Apollo.

"Like the JFK assassination conspiracy theories, the UFO issue probably will not go away soon, no matter what the CIA does or says. The belief that we are not alone in the universe is too emotionally appealing and the distrust of our government is too pervasive to make the issue amenable to traditional scientific studies or rational explanation and evidence." - Gerald K Haines
