Full Description of event/sighting: Last night at just after 2:00 in the morning I went outside, because I couldn't sleep. I stood in the back alley looking at the stars as it was a very clear night, with just a couple of clouds visible. I stood there not 5 minutes when what I thought was a satellite moving north at about 90 degrees directly overhead, it stopped dead in it's tracks and lit up to an enormous bright light that appeared to me to be pulsating. It lasted only about 5 seconds then started to diminish until it was the same spec in the sky as before and continued on its path. I am an amateur astronomer and skywatch as often as the weather permits, and know that this was way to high to be a helicopter which is often seen around my area. For this thing to go from a pin point of light to about the size of the tip of my index finger in brightness is very strange to me, as I'm sure it must have been very high in altitude. If there is an explanation I would love to hear it, because it has me at a loss. The color was bright white, and no noise was heard.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
