Further Description of Sighting: For the last 4 nights, my daughter and I have spotted the same thing around the same time. Look between 11:00pm & 11:30pm towards the west, just above the horizon, to the left of where the sunsets. Left of Big Dipper handle.
It starts out like a pinpoint of light and quickly gets bigger & brighter. Then it will move to the right and gradually dim out and vanish. The entire appearance lasts approx. 5 seconds. The first 3 nights it happened twice about 10 minutes apart.
Last night, it happened 5 times, beginning at 11:05 and ending at 11:29. I hope someone reads this and also looks in the sky for it this evening! I took a photo last night, extended exposure, handheld. For a point of reference, the light in the bottom left is a street lamp on Edelweiss Way.
We are on York road, approx 2 miles south of the PA line.
