Location: Manson, WA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 15 seconds
Very bright, round light appeared instantly and receded.

Was outside looking at stars. In the matter of a fraction of a second, a large very bright round light (if you were to hold a silver dollar at arms length), appeared in the East.

It stayed stationary for approximately 10 seconds or so.

Within the span of about 5 seconds, it receded, diminishing in size dramatically, until it was the size of a pin prick and then gone.

It did not move sideways, but rather backwards.
