bright light expanded and then contracted to a pinprick of light before disappearing

I was out walking the dogs at around 9:00pm in the neighborhood of the School of Theology. I stopped to relax and look at the stars even though there were very few (light pollution, clouds, and pollution all contributing to few visible stars).

As I sat looking straight up and a little north toward the mountains, I saw a very small cluster of stars. Slowly one grew to a very bright light, which I thought a first could have been be a plane coming my way though it wasnít moving and it became larger and larger to about the size of a dime in the sky.

At this point if it were an airplane or helicopter I should have been able to hear propeller blades or engines but there was no sound and somehow the light was different brighter brighter. Then the dime sized bright light shrank to a pinprick in the same spot and was gone. Iíve never seen anything like it!
