Duration: 1 second
Stationary light seen in night sky for one second

While looking at the northern section of the night sky observed a light, approx 5 times the size of Jpiter, appear between the North Star and Big Dipper then go out a second later.

(I also reported a similar incident that occurred last July 7, 2005 from same city and location.) Later, at 0:05 GMT observed a not-so-bright strobe light go off once in the same general area.
