I was putting out the trash for pickup after 10:00p, i was looking at the sky , checking out the moon and other objects. then after putting out the last can i noticed a glowing yellow object below ursa major that wasnt there a few moments earlier. it kept getting brighter to a max of -1.5 to -3.0 mag. the object never moved i got my phone out and verified direction (compass) nnw and approximated hiegth at around 30 deg in sky. while looking at it through binoculars it started fading in brightness until it was gone. the complete event was approx 6 min in duration after my initial observation.
