|Bright stationary light in Northern sky.
About 10:30 PM I was sitting on my deck observing Venus in the Western sky. With peripheral vision light from the north caught my right eye’s attention. I immediately turned to the north and observed a bright object almost due north and about halfway up in the sky. Being an amateur astronomer I knew there was no star at that location. The magnitude of the light was similar to Venus and about half the size. It remained stationary. I observed it for about 5-10 seconds then it faded out. It had a very star like appearance. As far as I could tell the object did not move.
