Shape: Light
Duration: 10 minutes
A large, bright yellow object that appeared and reappeared in a different part of the sky and disappeared.

I live in western Lake Worth. Housing development of Smith Farm at Fla. Turnpike and Hypolulo Rd. Was walking my dog and saw very large, bright, yellow object off in the western sky (it was about 5 times as big as Jupiter is in the sky now). At first I thought it was an aircraft because of the bright light. But, it did not move. I kept walking my dog around the development and it didn't move. Then it just disappeared. I continued to walk my dog for about another 5 minutes and when I got home, it was in the north-western sky behind my neighbor's house across the street from my house. My neighbor's house is a one-level house and this object was just above the roof off in the distance. I ran into my house and got my telescope. While I was trying to get this object into focus it just disappeared. I ran in my neighbor's back yard and it was nowhere to me seen. There were no clouds in the sky. Did anyone else see this?
