Strange light in sky over Cerritos California

While I was on a break at work I went out to my car. There weren't any clouds in the sky.

I was walking North toward my car when a bright star in the sky caught my eye, probably at a 60 to 70 degree angle. I looked up at it and it seemed to be stationary. Living in L.A. bright stars are a rarity, however this star seemed more like a flashlight pointing in my direction.

At first I thought it was a helicopter flying at high altitude, but after a few seconds it move northward and became dimmer, almost like a car at long distance coming at you and then turning away. I realized it wasn't a helicopter of plane when it trailed off but didn't have any blinking lights. The light disappeared and I didn't see it again. In all it lasted at least 15 second from the time I noticed it 'til the time it disappeared.
