Watching Meteor Shower, a large sliver/white dimond was in the NW position, watched for about 7-10 min and then gone.Venus does not do that.

It was at the Merritt Mountian Music Festival. Clear night, no clouds, no moon of what I can remember, dusk. My friend ((name deleted)) who is from Austria and I were watching the annual summer Meteor Showers, and I noticed that Venus was not out. I turned my head to the south to look for metors for about 30seconds and saw none, and then went back to the North West Postion and saw that there was a sliver/white dimond up in the sky. I thought it was Venus at first, but then it was dimond shape and not round like Venus is. It was located over a part of a camp ground called Tent Town. It just sat there, kind of shiny like Venus, and made no noise. I asked ((name deleted)) about it, and he said that he didn't see if came, We both watched it for about 7 minutes, and then it blinked out. I'm not sure if Adolf watched if for the whole time, but I watched it for the whole time, I didn't take my eyes away for a minute. It was just there and then it was gone again. Adolf saw it too. We were kind of creeped out so we went to our own camps and went to bed. That's it.
