Bright 'star' at sunset
I was returning home from work, the sun was setting and suddenly there was this very bright starlike object in the sky. It became very bright, then slowly dimmed, moving a bit to the left, then brightened again and then disappeared. I wonder what it could have been. I didn't see any contrails from planes etc. First I thought that it is a star but then it was too bright for start to be seen.

I live in northern Ontario in the boonies and let me tell you, there's some strange stuff in the night's sky when you stop and turn your sights heaven-ward.

The sun reflecting off a plane, I too have been caught out by that one.

Yes, I thought of that too but the sun was setting and the 'star' was in front of the sunset so a plane should have appeared as a black silhouet, IMO.

Re: Bright 'star' at sunset
Well, I can tell you that I was just outside and saw an amazingly bright star out there. Never seen anything that bright, and during the work week I spend half the night outside, and look up at the sky quite often. The star is sooo bright. It's to the north of the moon at the minute, but pretty far below it. There's also another star which is "straight up" which looks really weird, not so much bright as it is a color I've never seen in a star before. It stands out from the rest for sure, it's an orangish red. Figure it might be a planet, I suppose.

Venus is currently visible in the morning. Sounds like it may have been an Iridium Flare. See the following web site.

If it was in the NE sky then I believe it is the comet Holmes.
