Hovering light Christmas Eve over Brookfield Connecticut 2003

Looking West from Brookfield thirty degrees to the right of the Big Dipper, and adjacent in Horizon to a triangle of stars, a light object that looks almost like a bright planet- but larger is going vertical then descending, then going verticle- this has been going on since 11:30 when I noticed the strange motion of the lighted object- from my perspective it apears to be over the Town of Bridgewater, CT. It hovers and stops for thirty seconds or more at the top then descends back down towards the horizon then ascends again and again. There is only one light/object, it's movement is not like a satalite, plane or ultralite craft. It appears to be at an altitude where the wind can affect it as it looks to be pushed around by winds, ground winds presently around 10- 15 mph gusts, 31 degrees f.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witness might have been looking at a celestial body. PD))
