|Bright object in sky suddenly disappears
It's around 8:45 at night, myself, my twin brother and my two other friends are going to go for a walk on the beach. It is a clear night, there is some residual sunlight from the sunset and plenty of light pollution. After a 20 minute walk, it's a little after 9 when I point out a bright light in the sky. I was pretty sure it was Venus, astronomy is a hobby of mine and I can recognize alot of objects in the sky. I said to my brother, I don't think Venus is out after sunset in the summer, what do you think? He says he doesn't believe it would be out either. We stare at it for a couple minutes more when all of a sudden, as if it were shrinking, it disappears. We both looked at eachother in disbelief, "did that just happen"? The manner in which this light disappeared was too weird, it couldn't have been a flare, it was in the sky for too long, and the light's intensity remained constant. It was straight out of a UFO tv show, this thing went from being the brightest object in the sky, to completely gone in about 2 seconds.
As for details about how the UFO looked, all I can say is that it looked like Venus, it didn't twinkle however, and it never moved.
