Bright light over the Jackson areaAs I was driving home during rush hour and heading east on I-20 near Ellis Ave., I noticed a very, very bright (it was the brightest white light I've ever seen that wasn't a comet/meteor/etc.)large object hanging in the night sky towards the northeast. I thought it had something to do with Jupiter and Venus lining up, but I could see that to the southwest. I could see the object most of the way home but lost it once I turned off the interstate. About 15 minutes later, I was turning down the street where I live and the object was still in the sky but had changed intensity (it looked more like a streetlight hanging over the treeline at this point). I have no idea what it could have been, but I know it wasn't a planet/star that I'm familiar with. This is the third sighting I've had in about as many weeks, and the other two objects remind me of this one, too.
