Brilliant Light Shines and Disappears

I remember the exact day because it was that of the $500 million lottery drawing. My girlfriend and I were on the way to purchase a few tickets.

We pulled into the local gas station parking lot and through the sun roof a brilliant light was shining, almost floating in our direction. We both saw it and I commented to how it was flying very low. It was not a plane as we saw planes, indicated by blinking lights, flying in the back ground.

After parking, instead of rushing to buy lotto tickets, I was curious and wanted to see if I could hear the motor flying the mysteriously bright light. I could hear nothing, and I've been known to have keen ears.

My girlfriend and I were just looking at it when I noticed Venus next to the moon. I know it was Venus because i used a star map app to find out. As I focused on Venus, with the app, my girlfriend looked away from the shining object. An instant later the brilliant shining light was gone. I wanted to put the object in the app but no suck luck.

We were also out of luck when it came to winning the lottery. Maybe next time we'll get a video and the money.
