Shape: Light
Duration:10 seconds
Light grows and shrinks in size, brightens and dims, then disappears.

I work 3rd shift security at a shopping plaza, outdoors, and watch the sky every night. On the above date and time, I saw a light that at first I thought was a star. It was about the same height as other stars, and about the same size. Then I saw this light start to move slowly across the sky, and as it did, it started to get brighter and grew to about 5 times its original size. Then it started to dim and shrink until it just disappeared. This was a single steady white light, not blinking.
