|This seems to happen around the waning of the moon and on a clear night
I was alseep and woke up to a bright light shining in my window (no curtains in my window so I had a good view) I thought it was a bright star but realized that it was far too big to be a star or planet. I called my 2 older sons and we all stood there and watched it for an hour. It was very bright white and had rays of light that flashed every now and then. But it was very far in the sky and hard to see anything definite. Around 5:00 the sun began to rise and the stars in the sky were fading away, but this stayed bright. After this we went to bed and didn't see how it left.
Then this month (September) on or about the 5th, I woke up at 4:54 (I checked the clock) to the same light shinging from the same place. Again I called my son but everyone was asleep. I watched it for about 10 minutes. It had all the same characteristics as the first one. Fog started rolling in and I went to lie down. When I looked it was gone, even though some of the stars were still faintly shining. Then last night, September 7th, at 1:52, I woke to this light again. I called all three of my children this time. My 16 year old went onto the balcony with his binoculars to look at it. He said that it looked like lights were pulsating around it. Both lengthwise and widthwise and he said it looked octagonal, but I think it's too far away to judge. Once again we went to bed and didn't get a chance to see how it leaves.
