Twinkling light (not moving) in part of sky where no stars normally are at that time of the morning

I was outside briefly to have a cigarette and happened to look up to the NNW, fairly low in the sky, when I saw a twinkling light..as bright as Venus. Do not know how long it had been there. Since there are no stars in that part of the sky at that time of the morning I waited to see if it would move...but it did not. After about 5 minutes I went to go back in and again looked in the same direction, but alas it was gone!!!!


((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

I sent a report earlier re: twinkling light.

The other night, a plane was coming in for a landing at the local airport and was exhibiting the same characteristics. But this time I witnessed it turning.

So please delete the first report....as it was also probably an airplane.

Thanks
