At around 1 am on January 28, 2011, two eyewitnesses captured this amazing footage from the Armon Hanatziv panoramic lookout over Mount Zion and the Dome of the Rock/Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel.
At first, the bright light seems to be stationery. Then, at around the 0:50 mark, it begins to descend until it is resting just above the Dome of the Rock. Then, at around the 1:20 mark, it emits a huge super-bright flash and then shoots up at lightning speed.
One of the witnesses, Mr. Eli Gael, notes in Hebrew that he is certain it’s forbidden for Israeli civilian craft to hover over Jerusalem in such a manner.

Here’s another video, taken by American tourists (h/t fellow Ted Nougat):
