Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Moving blinking bright to dim object heading towards mountains, seen from Baldwin Park, CA

Went outside to see if I can watch some last minute fireworks throughout the city so I was scanning the sky. From my location looking towards Mount Wilson which is north of me in Baldwin Park, CA, what caught my eye was a bright light I thought it was a shooting star at first but it just got bright almost near the brightest star and it dimmed down. I thought no that's not a shooting star, then I thought was it a satellite? no I continued tracking it it was headed in a straight line towards north east.

It got really dim especially cause the light pollution and the smoke from the fireworks but i could still make it out that it was going in a straight line. What happened that it grew bright again and dimmed, when I continued watching it it continued to go bright and get dimmed, so it would go bright like a star then dim to almost unseen, I even lost it for a bit, but since it continued in a line I could just make out where it should be, but I also noticed that it seems to go farther in the distance. It just was really weird never seen anything like that. what it did was go bright then dim right away then travel maybe 3 or 4 sec then repeat about 3 times then I lost it then it did it again but lost it cause I guess it either was too far or it flew fast away or just stopped blinking. so at a count of one its bright then one sec dim then 3 or 4 count dimmed. but it was really bright that's why to me it was a UFO cause I never saw anything like that, it was not a plane cause it had one light and it was really small almost invisible when not lit. The color was like star light color and bright.
