Shape: Light
Stationary star-like object shrinks to a pinpoint and vanishes.

Approximately 1915 hours, Hawaii Standard Time, while facing S/SE, I observed a stationary star-like object almost as bright as Jupiter. Pondering whether this object was a star or planet, the object shrunk to a pinpoint of light and vanished within a few minutes after I first sighted it.

The object was about 70 degrees above the horizon.

There were no clouds in the sky and it was dusk.

Observation position was latitude 21 16' 11.28" and longitude -157 49' 5.16".

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of Iridium satellite?? PD))
