Thought to be star or planet Last night I stepped out onto our patio to have a smoke and enjoy the cooler weather. My back yard faces west, with a generous rural view. Usually I I drink my morning coffee while looking at falling meteors. After sitting down, I looked out at the night sky. Over to the northwest part of the sky, I noticed a bright yellowish star or planet, no big deal.

after playing a game on my phone I looked up and the light had moved closer. This caught my attention so I stood up to look a little longer. It was moving south east . thought it was a plane but there were no wing lights or sound. as I watched, I called to my wife to come look at this.. then all of the sudden the yellowish light changed into a a white highlighted arrow shape, it changed patterns a few times, then stayed on the arrow head shape and dissappeared.

have never see anything like this ever. as far as my personal background, I'm an artist, and my eyes are trained to see what's there not what I want to see.
