|Star suddenly moved and disappeared!
All of my report happened between 11:00pm-11:45pm.
There was an unusually bright star in the sky so I got my binoculars. It felt out of place so I kept an eye on it. On the opposite side of the horizon there was a star near what is typically the brightest star in the sky that was blinking red and green and white.
I was now keeping an eye on the big out of place one and the one that was giving off three colors. Neither moved at all and during a span of 40 min I managed to see 2 meteors streak across the sky.
After 40 min I started looking at all of the stars through my binoculars to see if any other ones gave off any green or red. When I was finished scanning the less neck cramping stars I focused on a bright star directly overhead, then all of sudden it started moving.
I was able to track it as it picked up speed got smaller and disappeared. From the time it started moving it was gone in about 2 seconds.
Completely in shock I turned around to see that the very bright out of place star that I kept an eye on for 40 min was gone.
The star with red and green never went anywhere so I'm sure there is a logical explanation for that one.
