because this took place last year, i'm am not able to give an exact time or date, i've tried to guess as accurately as possible. sometime around 11:00pm myself and 5 others went on a drive to find a so-call "huanted" asylum. in actuallity what it is is an old abandoned tuberculosis asylum from back in the 1920's. basically its a place high school kids (and some college kids, like myself) go to scare the hell out of them selves. this is the first time i had been out to the asylum, my friend and i had visited a number of times when we were in high school, however, we had never expirenced anything like we did on this night. at one point during the night we decided to go out to the roof to watch the stars(it was a very clear night). all of us were looking in basically the same area of the sky because one of my friends was pointing the constilations out to us. all of a sudden we noticed a unusually briliant star. as we all stared at it the "star" seemed to pulse and move back and forth. it did this for several moments then it more then quadrupled in size and briliance. then it went back to its original size for another few moments and the faded untill it was out of sight. we had no idea what it was and quickly crossed off any possiblity of teh object being an aircraft or a satellite because of its strange movements and lighting. we also ruled out a helicopter because even if it was at a high altitude we would have heard something, and there were no noises associated with the object. the only reason i'm even reporting this more then a year after this happened is because the other day i had a terrible dream about that night. i'm not saying what i saw was a true UFO, but i'm also not saying it wasn't. truth is a have no idea what it was, all i know is that it scared the hell out of 6 college students that night, and scared the hell out of me again the other night. thanks for listening
