BRIGHT white light low in the sky.

While at work one night I took a glance out the window and I noticed a very bright white light fairly low in the sky. The light was in the Western sky. It seemed to be constant (not flickering) or anything. I pointed it to a fellow coworker and they said it was probably a satellite. It was so bright and 4 times the size of the other stars in the sky. I have seen a satellite before, and this was NOT a satellite, however I do not know what it was.

I continued to watch it off and on as I was at work. It didn’t seem to move at all. It was a very clear night and you could see a few stars, but this was nothing like I have seen before. It was so bright. Between the time I noticed it and the last time I looked out approximately 40 minutes had past. The last time I looked out it was gone (at 2130).

It reappeared the following night around the same time, and at the same spot. This time it was still there when I left work at 2230 but it had moved further down the road, more in the south, over trees in the far distance. I went down the road and tried to take a few pictures and a couple of videos with my cell phone but it was hard to capture as there was no zoom on my phone for the video. It appeared to slightly change shape as I watched it. I watched it for a good 10 minutes, and went home.

The area I work in is towards the outskirts of town in a rural area. I have not seen this again.
