Planet Sized Orb Passes Behind Venus Then FLICKers Out!

I was looking up at Venus, and observed an pastel, pumpkin colored orb, which without consideration of distance, in size appeared to be about equal to that of Venus. It was moving from North to South in the Western sky, in the direction of the planet.

I reasoned that it must be some sort of man made satellite, but then it appeared to pass BEHIND Venus, and flickered out!
