Location: Roswell, NM
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Large, bright unidentified light in the western night sky over Roswell, NM.

I have been seeing this light in the Sky pretty much every night for the last few weeks.... It looks like an amazingly bright close star. I'm an avid star gazer so I immediately noticed this oddity. The first time I saw and watched it, I didn't leave the site of it and after about 20 minutes it brightened a great deal then disappeared. I've never seen that again as I have not watched it constantly again but I will spot It, go about my business checking on every 5 minutes or so and at some point look out to see that it's gone. I have taken pictures. Three on 01/20/17. Two tonight, 01/21/17. It is strange looking when I zoom in.
