Shape: Flash
Duration:20 sec. About
small light brightens in night sky and then disapears.

my brother has enterd a report as to what we saw on this website earlyer, but now i want to give my point of veiw. I had benoculars because i was attempting to see the brown mountain lights, but gave up as no spectacular display occured. My family and i decided to stargaze, as my brother has already stated. Three other witnesses were present. My uncle poited out a light in the sky believing it was a satalite, so i began to view it through my bonoculars. As i was following it i noticed it stopped. It then flared up into an increasingly bright white light. It was so bright i could no longer view it through my bonoculars. Looking through my naked eye i saw it dim down to it's original size and disapear. We waited at the area a little longer before leaving.
