Bright twinkling light with no colors flew witrh unusual pattern including a short curve and blinked out

I was out in my friends back yard looking up at the moom. We see many planes flying over our town on their way east from Sky Harbor, Phoenix.

I saw a bright sparkling light going toward the Southeast and passing quite close to the crescent moon. I kept watching it waiting to see the telltale blinking lights we see on all the planes. It continured and seemed to almost pause and the light was like a rotating crystal effect.

I called my friend to come out cause I knew this was not a plane. As she and started looking up the light faded and blinked out.

The whole episode was about 30 seconds.

I have watch many, many planes fly over and this was not any type plane I have ever seen.
