Shape: Light
Hovering and flashing light in night sky seen for 45 minutes.

At around 2am I laid down to sleep and noticed a bright light in the sky that should have been moving if it were an airplane or satellite. Instead, it flashed/shimmered in one spot. Sometimes the flash would be on the right side and then on the left later. It just hovered in the same spot in the sky. After about 45 minutes of watching it I finally fell asleep. Initially, I thought it was a dying star, but it was exponentially brighter than anything else in sky. Additionally, the flashing/shimmering wasn’t on side, then the other, not all over it.
