Exiting my car after returning from work, I noticed a unusual light to the left of true north at about ll oclock. It "blinked out" after about 5 secs. The light was opaque in color with. While in site, the light had no movement. It was a fixed position.

As I exited my car after returning home from work, I noticed a light in the sky. Opaque in color, and no movement. After about 5 sec the damn thing just blinked out. I'm a truckdriver that has worked the latenight and predawn hours for years. I've seen shooting stars, meteors, re-entry junk, and aircraft. My only response to what I saw was, "aw Jeez". Because I can't explain what I saw. My exact cords at the time were 42deg20.97N 089deg01.24W
