I keep seeing these objects

I keep seeing these things. On September 23, I woke from sleep, needing to go to the bathroom. Next to my bed is a large window that faces due east. When it is warm I like to prop the window open for fresh air, which I had done this night. Before I went to the bathroom, I took a look out the window as I usually do. It was clear and cool and many stars were visible. I saw Jupiter maybe 10 degrees above the horizon to the ENE, Sirius to the southeast, with the constellation Orion above it. I know the stars, planets and constellations pretty well as I have been interested in astronomy since I was young. I own a nice telescope I use on occasion.

What was unusual was a bright star like object about 10 degrees above Jupiter and slightly north of it as well. This object was a bright white color, brighter than both Jupiter or Sirius. I was a little confused because I look out the window every morning and have not seen this star before. It did not appear to be moving at all. After about 15 seconds, it suddenly dimmed to a very small pinprick of light, and then dimmed out altogether. I looked carefully to see if a cloud had passed in front of this star, but it was very clear. I did see one faint patch of cloud, but this was nowhere near this "star".

That's it, that is my sighting. Not very eventful except that I keep seeing objects like this on a regular basis. Back in April I was going to work early in the morning when I got the impression to look up, and I saw a very bright light just like the one I saw tonight, which also quickly faded out a few seconds later. Over the past five years or so I have seen about half a dozen lights like this. You can't help but feel that these objects are appearing for the express purpose that you see them. I am not a nut job, but I know what I am seeing, and I am seeing these objects on a regular basis. I have a very difficult time believing it is just a coincidence that I repeatedly look up just as some bright military aircraft or other object is hovering in the sky, and then quickly turns off its lights, or jets away. Altogether, I have seen UFOs about a dozen times in my life, three times up close with much detail. But the last few years I seem to just "look up" and there they are. What they are I have no clue.

I am rather religious and do not believe these objects are from other planets, I rather believe they are spiritual in nature. Still, why do I keep seeing these things? Most people never see a single UFO in their entire life, I have probable seen at least a dozen. What does it mean? Oh well, that's it. I have turned a very short and unremarkable sighting into something big, but when you keep seeing these things, it begins to get to you after awhile.
