Location: Vancouver (Canada), BC
Shape: Light
Duration:2 seconds
Light like a star moved right, then stopped, then grew brighter and vanished.

I just saw two stars on my walk with my dog, except one was moving away from the other at a rate that looked odd, and sideways. I was walking so I stopped to see if it was me or the light moving. It continued to move for another half second. Then it stopped. Then in grew in intensity and simply disappeared. I waited for it to come back, thinking it went behind a cloud. No clouds. Lots of stars, but no clouds. It was the about the size of the brighest star in the sky, at about 45 degree angle. I held my hand up to just the distance it travelled, about 5 finger widths to the right of what appeared to be venus, (star had a tinge of redish to it).
