At about 1:30-2:00 AM on 6/14/14 I let my dog out as I always do. As usual, I looked up to the sky to check out the stars. I noticed, almost directly above me, a very bright orange/red light. I first thought it was the north star, but I realized this was too high from the horizon and somewhat toward the east. Then I thought perhaps it was a flare, but living next to a military base, I've seen them let off flares many times. They are never this high in the sky, they are brighter, they fall, and being so close to the base I can see the smoke from them.
The size and features of the light was just like a star only much brighter, It was certainly the brightest star in the sky. I watched it for about 5 seconds then it just faded away. The fade to gone took about 1-2 seconds.
The light never moved. There were clouds in the sky, by none in the area where I saw the light. I went back out a few minutes later, then 30 minutes later, then 1 hour later and it didn't appear again.
