Duration:1-1.5 hrs
Light in the sky, moving eratically, dimming and undimming, and staying still.

I have done a lot of research on UFOs and the like in the past. I have seen many planes in the sky, many helicopters, many military planes, many stars, planets, the moon; I have never seen this, this obviously.

This light that I saw in the sky, which I first mistook for the Northern Star, was, to me, shaped like a star, just a speck of light, so bright, its like the Northern Star amplified times 10. Even behind black clouds, I can see this light, a trait I have never before witnessed in any object in the sky.

It would sit in the sky, completely stationary, for a while, about 30 minutes or so, then it would slowly move.. the most amazing thing to me is when it actually starts moving, all over the place. It moves seemingly closer to me, or further. This may be the light glowing stronger or weaker, because the light would, after about an hour, begin to dim slowly. It would dim, and re-light a little bit when it was out, then move more, and stop again, when the light was out, I could no longer see it.

The even more amazing thing is, I think I saw the SAME OBJECT IN THE SKY TODAY, which makes me think that it might be a plane or something, using a clock, coming back every day, I do not know for how many days this has been going on. I started at it the second day today, and it did the exact same thing as yesterday.. it was the most eerie thing I have ever seen in the sky. The amazing thing is, it might be in the sky tomorrow at the same time... I am going to get a large group of friends to go and watch this thing at the same time tomorrow. I will send another report tomorrow if it is there again.
