white cirlce of light suudently appears

This is an odd sighting.

This was July or August 2008 and I was sitting on my patio about 10:30 pm local time looking at the night sky and viewing to the northeast. I saw immediately a star sized light suddenly "turn on" and appear in the night sky. It slowly began to increase in size to a perfect white circle to about 2-3 times the size of a pea held at arms length. It then stopped increasing in size and then blinked out. Several seconds later I thought I saw a very faint dot move rapidly south from the position where I first saw this light. This couldn’t be a meter as no trial or sparks or other colors were seen with this light, it was a white perfect circle. There were no other lights seen attached to it suggesting aircraft running lights or tail lights.
