Duration: 25 minutes
saw a light in the sky that would vanish for a few seconds then come back, every 10 minutes or so and after 25 minutes it vanished

It was late at night and i went outside to walk my dog and looked up. i saw a circle of light, slightly larger than a star in the sky. at first i thought it was a planet, since i know during certain times, certain planets can be seen quite clearly in the night sky. Yet, after 15 minutes or so of watching it was clear this was no planet.

The light would blink in and out. it would go dark and vanish completely for two to three seconds every couple minutes or so. i was very interested so i continued watching it. after about 25 minutes of watching this phenomena, the light blinked 3 times in rapid succession and on the fourth it stayed dark and never came back. From now on I'll be doing more night sky watching.
