Location: Henderson, NV
Shape: Flash
Duration:2-4 minutes
Flashes of light in the sky, brighter and higher then planes, a little larger, distance unknown.

Saw a flash that faded out in about a second to North/North East every 10-30 seconds. It was bright enough to catch my attention (I wasn't looking up, originally). It was also higher than the planes flying by. Every flash was dimmer than the last.

Wondering if it could have been a dieing star? I never seen one before and am not sure if you can with your naked eye. Hoping someone else saw it when it was maybe brighter or knows of any astronomical events.
