Location: Sturgeon Bay, WI
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Brief moving light, turned off as if on a dimmer switch

Parked on 3rd Avenue, in front of the Door County Advocate newspaper offices(Directly in front of the stone map on the building), waiting for a friend. The night was clear, with no clouds or any fog/haze. Looking to the north, when I happened to see a light in the sky at roughly 343 degrees. In the brief time I saw it, object/light appeared to be moving on a course of roughly 335. Then within 1 second, light dimmed and went out, like what you see when using a dimmer switch on a house light.

(The below are representations - events like these NEVER seem to happen when I am carrying a camera. %^&*%&*) At no time before, during, or after did I hear any sounds of aircraft (either prop or jet), and the object/light did not make any sound that I could hear.

There were several other people out in front of Van's bar at the time, but (unfortunately) I don't think they saw it as 1 had his back to it, the other was turned slightly away.
