Bright White Light Moving Slower Then Normal Aircraft.

I went outside for a cigarette and noticed what looked to be a light on top of a nearby mountain top. It looked as if it was moving slowly, so I kept an eye on it to determine if it was moving. Once I was sure it was moving I was thinking it was a plane or a helicopter. There was no noise as would be normal with a aircraft.

I then noticed that it was moving way to slow for a plane. I kept watching as it started to move closer and closer to my direction. It went into some trees and shone brighter then before and then it just vanished.

At first I was thinking it was behind the trees so I kept waiting for it to clear and come into view again. It never came back into view and I even went to higher ground and couldn't see it.

After another 10 mins or so of looking I gave up and decided it had just vanished. This is the second time I have seen strange lights in the area. I am looking for similar reports from my area. Thanks
