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 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!!!!


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 it was also probably an airplane.
