Duration:10seconds
A star disappeared after looking at it for several seconds.

I know there was a meteor shower last night because I was outside watching it. I was looking to the north somewhat to the left of the big dipper. I was looking at three stars, one above the other at an angle. The top one just winked out.There was no trail.If it had been a meteor there would have been a trail. If it was a meteor than it was hovering in the same position for a good five to ten seconds. Do you have any idea about this one?
