Duration: 10 seconds
Object seen over Kansas City during morning commute. Vanished 10 seconds after spotting it. Third time phenomenon observed.

Saw a definite solid object in the sky just to the west of I-35 near 95th street. It was far enough away that I couldn't distinguish any shape or features- just kinda looked like a shiny white object. I ruled out the possibility that this was a bird and it wasn't any sort of reflection on the windshield of my car. This was definitely some type of aerial object that was VERY visible and just suddenly vanished after 10 seconds from when I first spotted it.

While watching the object, it "blinked" a couple times- like if you had a dimmer switch on a light bulb and dimmed the lights partially for half a second and then turned it back up.

This was the third occasion in the last couple months I have seen this phenomenon. All three incidents occurred in the Kansas City area during my commute to work in the morning (different locations each time though). Each time the object was very visible for about 10 seconds and then just vanished- didn't fly away, just quickly faded like a light going out.
