Bright star-like object/ light fades into sky rapidly

I was looking up at the sky noticing the bright moon in daylight when I saw what appeared to be a bright star right before dusk, larger than normal. I kept looking at it for a good 5 seconds and then it just faded into the sky, like someone turned the dial to a light from bright to off very fast. There was no movement or reappearance.

I kept looking to see if I somehow lost it from my view, but nothing. As I waited to see, there were a few aircraft passing by with their blinking lights, but there was one plane as high as you can imagine a plane could be with the trail you can see that planes make, right over the area I saw the "UFO" almost as if it was flying over there in case people called in a UFO sighting and it could be a cover for that time frame, within 10 minutes of what I saw.
