|Star became extremely bright, then dim again. Then moved off to the South.
Sitting in a lawn chair fishing from the town pier, facing east. What appeared to be a star all of the sudden became extremely bright and much, much bigger. This stationary brightness continued for several seconds and then it went back to star size again. At that time it began move off to the south.
It did not blink like a plane would. It traveled at the approximate speed that a jet would, although it seemed maybe a little faster. It disappeared high in the sky through the haze.
