Location: Minnetonka, MN
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Stationary Light became extremely bright and unfamiliar before fading and disappearing.

Noticed a "star" or a "plane" that seemed unusually bright and twinkling (was actually more of a flashing at times). Thought this was odd, looked at few other stars in the sky, they were all significantly less bright and unremarkably twinkly. This woke me up more and and i watched the object in question for 20-30 more minutes hoping it would go back to looking like the rest of the stars or start moving like a plane or a satellite. No change in the objects location occurred during this time but the light grew much stronger and seemed to sparkle like brilliant white light from far away refracting through a crystal. Thought i saw distinction between blue and red light so i continued to watch the object hoping, again, it would display behavior like an airplane or something familiar. At one point the light became so brilliant i was positive this was not like any star i have ever seen. The twinkling/flickering seemed to fluctuate at a constant rate, like something mechanical. To give you an idea, if the brightest stars and lights from nearby jets in the sky amounted to a pea, this object's light at its brightest moment would comparable be that of an apple. Light faded and is now gone from the spot in the sky, even when no visible cloud cover is overhead.
