So for this intense light,being thesize of a football field, to just disappear as though a switch was flipped off...

My son and I were visiting in Green Lake,Wisconsin.That friday night, I was walking "Rocky" the dog when I saw a flash of light, perhaps a falling star. Then a bright, intense starlike light was approaching from the west at a medium rate of speed.I thought this might be the lights on a commercial jet. Straining to see any blinking lights I thought "where is the engine noise?" I was listening for gas propellent for balloons. The bright intense light passed overhead and to the east. Still no green or red flashing lights.Then it was just gone, like it went into a black hole or something. The night was very clear and one could see all the stars including the south to north track of satellites.So for this intense light,being the size of a football field,to just disappear as though a switch was flipped off seemed impossible. I went back to get my son and binoculars to go back out.Again a shooting star and then a bright light.Looking at the object through our binoculars we still did not see any flashing aircraft lights,no noise,just motion.The white intense light,smaller though, or the same one farther away, heading in a different direction? Did anyone else see this?
