|observed light move across sky then fade out
Was outside with my dog and happened to look up and noticed a light in the sky ...it did not seem to move at first, then it moved slowly and seemed to get brighter as it moved.It moved approx 4-5 inches finger width at arms length and then it seemed to emit a kind of beam of light...like a searchlight or spotlight that kind of made a sweeping motion Then it just kind of faded out as it was still moving.I watched the same area for about another 5-6 minutes to see if i could see some kind of navigation lights or something to that effect...but i did not see anything else....it was just there and then it was gone. I was looking in a northeasterly direction...sky was very dark...no clouds in the sky....many stars visible...half moon was to my back At its brightest, object was approx as bright as the planet Venus, yellowish white in color...approx 30-40 degrees above the horizon... The strange part was that it just seemed to appear out of nowhere...i was looking in that general direction and noticed it sort of out of the corner of my eye.
