Saw a stationaty object in the sky giving off a light, the light grew and the craft vanished.

I was standing out on a loading dock on a cigarette break. It was a cloudless day and I was watching a jet liner climb to altitude when I looked almost straight up and saw a glimmer at around 70 degrees (using me looking straight up as 90, I would say the plane was 20-25 above the horizon).

At first thought I thought it was a drone because the object was not moving and had what looked like a white light coming from the side of it. The longer I watched it, I noticed the light grow to almost triple the size it was before. I looked away for a second to flick my cigarette and I couldn't find the object in the sky again. The object was stationary during my entire viewing. The only change was the size of the light. I couldn't tell how high the object was, or it's size. After sky gazing for sometime I would assume that the object was at or around cruising altitude for a jet. I could make out a greyish color to the craft, but no discernible shape, just enough to see that there was something that was emitting or reflecting the light. I attempted to take a picture with my cell phone, but the object was too far away to show anything other than pixels. I grabbed my actual camera and tried to find it again but had no luck.
