Location: Bismarck, ND
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Bright light traveling east turned south and then appeared to remain motionless for no less than a minute before disappearing.

My son and I where having a fire. We live on the edge of town and noticed what at first site appeared to be a bright airplane flying at cruising altitude. This bright light was Northwest of our location when first sighted and traveling east.

The light then began to make a relatively sharp turn to the South. The brightness of the object as well as the turn it was making was enough to capture my focused attention. The light turned South and then stopped, when the object stopped it was South East of our location.

The object appeared to remain motionless for at least a minute. The brightness of the object did not seem to substantially change from the moment it was spotted until it was last seen. It did seem to pulsate but the relative brightness remained the same as far as I could tell from when it was NW of our location to SE and appearing motionless.

I regret to say, I looked away at the fire for about 5-10 seconds, if that, and my son exclaimed, "It's Gone!".

I looked up in disbelief, since I was just looking at it and it was so bright, and it was gone no sign of it whatsoever.
