Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Stationary bright object that immediately caught my eye as I stepped out the door.

I stepped out our back door,which faces due east,and immediately noticed a bright "star" where I know one isn't! For your reference,look up at Cassiopeia,extend your arms,and bend your wrists in so you can put four fingers on top of the other ones. About 8 fingers down from the bottom star of Cassiopeia and a little to the right, is a dim but noticeable star. There's a dimmer one close and to the right of that one. Just to the left of those stars, was a bright, not white but towards amber, light. It was brighter than a magnitude O star, which is why I noticed it as soon as I stepped out the door! It wasn't moving at all. I was torn between running in the house and grabbing my binoculars and staying put!

I'm glad I stayed because at about 30 or 40 seconds, it just got dimmer till it was gone. It appeared to go directly "away" from my vantage point. No left to right deviation what so ever.
