|I saw a bright light in the sky (similar to Venus, but opposite Venus ), then it dimmed to a tiny dot and dissappeared.
I was driving East just as it was getting dark. I noticed (what I believe are) Jupiter and Saturn in front of me. Then I noticed a very bright light just to the right (South) of the planets. It was about the brightness of Venus, but it was not Venus. My first thought was that it was a plane but as I continued to watch it I noticed that it did not move or blink at all. I commented to my daughters that it must, then, be a planet and I was amazed that either Mars or Mercury would be so bright. As I was watching the light it dimmed to a tiny dot (without moving from it's position) and dissappeared. There were virtually no clouds in the sky at this time.
