I witnesswed a light in the sky increase in size and brightness. As it reached its pinnacle it began to decrease in size and brightness until it disapeared. It remained stationary for the full duration. Astromnomical event?

((NUFORC Note: Ordinarily, NUFORC would assume that a sighting report of this nature would have been caused by the characteristic flash caused by the Sun's reflection off the solar collectors of an "Iridium" satellite. However, if the light was, in fact, stationary, the event was not due to an Iridium flash.))
