spooky light that shines at you but tries to act like a star in a constellation afterwards.

me and my younger sister stepped outside one night and i was showing her constellations as well as i knew them and all of a sudden in the big dipper a light that ithought was a star grew more intense and shifted a baseballs width held at arms length to my left (i was facing west). then the light looked similar to someone with a flashlight moving the flashlight in erratic patterns for a few seconds. then the light that moved dimmed again and stayed there for the remainder of the night. we were scared after this incident so we ran inside but we stayed to witness enough to know that it was not normal. after we gained enough courage to go back out again it felt to us as though we were being watched by the light. but we are okay now. thanx.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the objects may have been celestial bodies, but we have no explanation for why they would move as much as the witness reports. PD))
