I was in the parking lot outside my apt. looking for meteors. I was looking directly up at zenith when I noticed a small light grom much brighter (blue-wht) quickly (2 seconds). It then dimmed by 1/2 immediately changel location (about an inch of sky to the NW). It then came to a stop again and then quickly started moving again (1-2secs) to the N. As it did it became dimmer and dimmer and had disappeared after moving about 3 inches of dky to the norther. Keep in mind it had to be high, I thought it was a satellite at first until after the sighting when I said to my girlfriend...duh satellites to stop. When it dimmed and disappeared it seemed to me that it dimmed b/c it was getting higher and higher in alt, not that the light source dimmed or that it had headed far enough N at a constant alt. I was not really excited by it I came inside a reported it too my girlfriend. oddly enough this is the 2nd sighting I have had this year..reported one 7/4/13 in about the same location. It was the motion of this object going from still to moving in a blink and finally seemed to ascend as it headed N disappearing after only covering about 3 inches of sky (although it was at an apparent high altitude)
