|The brightest star/planet over yellowstone that flickered on and off and went completely out then on again.
A friend of mine and I went out to have a cigarette; we sat in the yard. She sat first and before I was able to sit she said "holy shit, that star just disappeared"!!! I said no way, she said look. When I turned to look it seemed to be ok and then it started to flicker like a lighter losing it's fuel and puffing out. It dimmed and lit up then dimmed and then it went POOF! GONE! The flicker lasted about 2/3 seconds and then it went out for about 2/3 seconds and then it came back again. It dimmed and brightened a couple of more flashes and then stayed bright.
To get more eyes on it, my neighbors were out and I called them over, we looked for about 5 mins but it didn't happen again. It gave me goosebumps and I couldn't stop looking at it.
It was the brightest star in the sky over the southern sky in direction looking towards Big Sky/Yellowstone.
