Bright sparkle in the north eastern sky that hovered and went below the treeline into the horizon

I awoke about 3 a.m., January 24, 2008. Lying down I was staring out the window. The window faces north; at about 1:00 in the eastern sky I saw a bright twinkling light. It reminded me of a distant fire fly.

I assumed it was a plane, but it did not move to the east, or west, nor did it come toward my home. From this distance it appeared stationary. I realized it was probably not a plane because there was no flashing light, nor did I see green or red light as you usually do when you see a plane pass by.

As I watched, it slowly disappeared below the tree line in the north eastern sky. I didnít think it could be a plane then, because the direction was going away from me. I assume then, that I was not looking at tail lights at that brightness and sparkle.

The background was a tree lined hill and pastures. There are no suburban neighborhoods in that direction.
