Strange light where there were no known planets or large stars in that vicinityApproximately 9:00 pm I was outside observing the night sky. I was looking west at approximately 40 degrees and noticed a large bright light where I knew there was no planet. I had not seen this light there before. This was located near but not in the Big Dipper Constellation.I watched the light for approximately 15 minutes and it appeared to be moving at a very slow pace. It seemed to twinkle and emit a faint glow.I tried to use telephone wires to gauge how far it had moved. A jetliner was passing in the area and it was moving much faster that this object. I don't believe it was the space station, as it had already been by around 7:21 at 11 degrees and was not scheduled to make another pass in my area that night.I went inside and about an hour later I came out, the light was gone.I did not notice the light last night when I went out to try to find it.What was it?
