Shape: Light
Stationary star-like object shrinks to a pinpoint and vanishes.

Approximately 1915 hours, Hawaii Standard Time, while facing S/SE, I observed a stationary star-like object almost as bright as Jupiter. Pondering whether this object was a star or planet, the object shrunk to a pinpoint of light and vanished within a few minutes after I first sighted it.

The object was about 70 degrees above the horizon.

There were no clouds in the sky and it was dusk.

Observation position was latitude 21° 16' 11.28" and longitude -157° 49' 5.16".

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of Iridium satellite?? PD))
