As my family and I were out fishing on the pier we were waiting to see the sun go down. My son noticed a plane flying high in the sky, but I noticed something much higher. At first my husband said it was a star, but I said no it was way to low to be a star. I watched it for about 5 minutes and it just seemed to stay in one spot. It was very bright and almost seemed to twinkle different colors. We all looked at it for awhile. Then one of my kids saw a dolphin in the water. When we looked back up after a couple of minutes the object was gone. My husband and I are both school teachers and our children are 13 & 15. We have never seen anything like this before. At one point we said possibly a satellite, but the ones we have spotted in the past were moving. We enjoy looking at the stars and have seen a meteor shower but we do not actively look for things out of the ordinary. I would like to know if there is anyone else who may have seen this as well.

((NUFORC Note: Twinkling star, or Venus?? PD))
