Oddly bright flickering light on the horizon for 25 minutes

This is quite an odd experience for me, because when it comes to “UFOs” I’m sort of a skeptic. Though I do not denounce the fact that there is more than a good chance for intelligent life outside our solar system. However, I cannot say either way if this was not of this world or if it was some Government aircraft testing.

Below is my account of what I saw tonight:

As I was driving home headed east bound towards Elmira, NY, I noticed a very bright light out on the horizon that seemed to be flickering at about 30 degrees away from the horizon.

At first I didn’t think much of it, but as I was driving past Sayre, NY, I noticed it was still in the sky, only slightly brighter and unmoving. My next thought was that it was Jupiter.

Wrong, again Jupiter (supposedly the brightest “Light” in the sky besides the Moon) is slightly higher and off to my left a little more.

Anyway, I continued watching this light while driving down the highway all the way to Elmira and through the city.

The light had become lower in the sky, though dimmer. I lost sight of it when I arrived to my home in Elmira. This was extremely weird and I am very interested to see if anyone else has seen this.
