It looked like dissapearing satellites

I was on the deck letting my dog out for one last time this evening. To the south east at the point of a bright star, there was one very bright object moving south to north. I thought it was a satellite, but it disappeared after a 5 inch movement across the ski and on a clear evening. A few seconds later the same or another burst came on the same path and disapeared.

((NUFORC Note: The description is not inconsistent, we observe, with a tumbling satellite, or rocket booster, but it should have continued to be visible as it moved to the north, I.e. "toward" the sun, which would have been shining over the north-northwest horizon at this time of night. PD))
