Shape: Chevron
Duration:2 minutes
Bright quarter Moon-shaped object over a ridge top, entirely lit up over and over, almost like a series of photos in the sky.

We had a dinner reservation at 5:30 PM on New Year's Eve, so at 5:25 PM I went outside to get the car started and warm. It was dark. On the way to the car I saw an object looking like a quarter moon with the bottom left corner filled in.

The object moved over a hillside, just over the top of the hill. It finally went behind the trees but I could still see the light from it. It was almost as large as the trees.

The object moved in a jerky fashion, almost like I was looking at a series of photographs projected in the sky, in first a westward direction, and later north, behind the trees on top of the hill.

I watched it for about 30 seconds from the driveway, and then when it disappeared behind the trees I walked out in the yard where I could still see the light it made for a few more seconds. It was not the moon, which was in the western sky.
