Unusually large star catch's my baby's attention..

Sitting on the patio with my son, who just turned 2, when he pointed to the sky (southwest towards the coast) and said "light". The word (light or lights) is one of the very few words in his limited vocabulary and could mean a wide variety of things. Not expecting much I looked up and saw what appeared to be an unusualy large star or planet. The "stars" larger than average size, unusual brightness and semi-sqared shape really got my attention. It also appeared to have several smaller lights ringing or dotting it's parimeter. As for movement, it looked mostly stationary, like an airliner does when flying twards you on decent from medium altitude. Not a very dramatic sighting for sure, but I'm sure curious as to whether anyone else noticed this, or was it just some normal celestial occurance. Note that it was bright enough and unusual enough for my toddler to take notice.
