Strange streek across m42 ???

Hey everyone/anyone.. I was observing M42 at around 4:30 AM Indiana time today (9/11). I witnessed a light travling north to south just west of the trap. I might have considered it a metetor, however, the path was not straight. Also is seemed to slow down and then speed up again. I figure I was covering around 3 arc seconds of sky, and it took maybe 1 1/2 seconds to cross. I was observing just south of Indy. Did anyone else see it?

Thanks in advance.
