|Bright Venus-like stationary light appears in late evening sky and abruptly dims and fades in place
In the SSW about 45 degrees up, I noticed a white light about as bright as Venus appears in the morning sky right now, which is very bright. I'm not sure exactly how long it had been there, but the last time I looked at that part of the sky was about 15 seconds prior to when I noticed it. It was about 1 1/2 hand widths to the left of Jupiter and a little higher up. Perfectly stationary.
As soon as I trained my binoculars on it, it dimmed to a faint star-like light, and through the binoculars it looked just like a star and continued dimming until it was no longer visible. I continued watching that area of the sky for another 10 minutes and didn't see anything else that was unusual.
