it came back - much brighter than before...
Time: 7:35 - 7:50 a.m., EST
Date: Monday December 14, 2015
Weather: Partly Cloudy, with a storm on the way in
Time: None missing; was not operating a car
I was looking out the upstairs bedroom window this morning, and noticed something unusual. It was far past the time for stars to be noticeable in the morning sky (7:35 a.m.), and it was also far too low in the sky to be a star.
The bedroom window I was observing this light from, faces south.
From my perspective, it was about the size of a large dressmaker's round coloured pin. It's what happened next that was really interesting - it blinked out, and disappeared; then, as quickly as it disappeared, it came back - much brighter than before. Then, it started moving slowly, westward.
At this point, I ran downstairs to retrieve a pair of 20x binoculars.
When I returned to the upstairs window, it was still there - moving slowly westward. Then, suddenly, it went back to its original position - eastward, just over the end of our street. Then, it started moving westward; at the same rate it was originally. It would appear and disappear through the clouds. It was very bright - a golden "bronze" colour.
It was circular in appearance.
If it was high enough up in the sky, it could easily be mistaken for a star. However, stars do not appear, disappear, move westward, and stop; move eastward quickly and stop; then resume their original westward course.
It made no sound.
However, I was indoors; I wasn't standing outside. I observed the object moving westward, until it was no longer visible. This observation took place between 7:35 and 7:50 a.m., EST on Monday December 14, 2015.
Unfortunately, I did not capture a picture - it probably wouldn't have shown-up very well. This would have required a camera with a powerful zoom lens and at least 4K video capability.
I will call this an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. I can tell you what it wasn't: An airplane, a helicopter, a drone, a star, a Chinese lantern, or swamp gas.
I wanted to send this on, due to its location and unusual characteristics.
