Shape: Changing | Duration: 5min
Source:

Bright light, very distant. Color and sligh shape changing for 5 minutes then dimming out to nothing.I was laying in bed and looking out the window when I happened to notice a bright light to the northeast. I watched this light fora while and noticed that it wasn't moving at all, yet there were no visible stars or planets due to the light pollution of the city. There was a large amount of twinkling visible and the object appeared to change color and perhaps shape and size. It was difficult to view with great resolution as I was forced to look through a screen window to see it. I stared in amazement for about five minutes while trying to determine if the object was moving when suddenly it dimmed out and dissapeared.
