Location: Columbia, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:unknown
Stationary star like light in sky suddenly disappeared.

Looking east at clear but hazy sky around 60 degrees up from horizon I noticed what I had thought for several minutes was just a bright star suddenly disappear. It was bright like Jupiter but not so bright as Venus. It faded quickly out, slower than just instantly blinking out. It had been stationary in the sky.
