I was sitting on my balcony like I do most nights star gazing. I looked up and noticed what I thought was a star or plane light get brighter and brighter. size grew with brightness and then after a few seconds disappeared. after a few seconds the light came back on and brighter again. this happened a total of three times over a period of 4-6 minutes. no noise was heard. this was right after the rain storm and there was some lighting but not close to this star like object. no clouds. skies were clear. this was nothing like I have ever saw in the sky. this was not a plane or helicopter light from m my opinion; not from that distance. the light appeared to be as high as the stars almost. This is why I cannot explain how the light was so big and bright. this really amazed me. I guess this could be a government or military thing but I will not know anytime soon. If it was not a ufo and it is military or government, I just hope it belongs to the united states.
