Bright like disappears in Southwestern Sky over Goodyear, AZ.

Along with my wife, we witnessed a bright light in the Southwestern sky. At first it appeared to be a star (no other stars were yet visible). After watching the star for about 15 seconds it became less bright, but still visible. Within another 20 seconds, it again became bright, then suddenly disappeared altogether. Obviously, I have no clue if it what it was, possibly a weather balloon for all I know, but it was interesting, and most unusual.
