Duration:20-25 minutes
A bright v shaped stationary object in the northwest night sky.

I heard a helicopter flying low over my house and went out to see what was going on. I saw the helicopter and then noticed a bright v-shaped light/object in the northwest sky, around 30 degrees above the mountains. It appeared to be emitting light beneath it.

I viewed it from several locations in my yard and it looked the same. I got my son (20) and wife and they also saw it. It was brighter and twice as big as anything else I could see.

I went inside after about 20 minutes and looked online to see if anyone else was reporting it.

I went out about 10 minutes later and it was gone, although a bright star that was under and to the right of it was still visible.
