Hello All, first time poster here. Saw something in last nights sky that has me puzzled as to what I saw. Last night being May 03, 2010. I was looking up at the sky around 9:00pm PST and a suddenly bright object caught my eye. It continued to get a bit bigger and brighter, then reversed and shrunk getting dimmer until it disappeared completely. I scanned the area for awhile longer not seeing anything. It was not moving across the sky, it was stationary. It just went from being someone dim, to getting bigger and brighter, then shrinking back down until there was nothing. What did I see? Thank you. If theres any other details you might need feel free to ask and I will answer if I can. By the way, the color was white, like any other star in the night sky.
