Bright star like object overhead that went dim, then disappeared from the sky.

Approx. 730pm I ventured outside my home in a suburban neighborhood and looked up. I immediately noticed a very bright blue/white star above about 80 degrees. I thought gee, I didn't know Jupiter was visible this time of evening. As I stared at it for several seconds and pondered of retrieving my telescope, it suddenly got dimmer. I thought, this is what a pulsar or binary might look like, when suddenly the object began moving towards the north becoming dimmer every second until no longer visible.

I have seen many jets, major pathways are overhead, I have seen satellites that move across the sky, but I have never seen an object such as this move like it did. Someone please tell me what I saw, I am very curious?
