Bright orb shape, travels slightly then vanishes

My husband and I were in our backyard to have a cigerrete before calling it a night. I noticed almost immediately a bright ball at 12 o'clock southeast. It was still, not flashing but bright. I said to my husband "oh wow look I think that must be Jupiter or one of the planets look how bright and close it is". Mind you I have been watching it for almost two mins now. I love to look up at night.

My husband said where, so he looked up to direction I was looking and I pointed. I swear the second I pointed at the orb its light shrunk down to look like every other star and began to quickly move about two to three inches right ( but thousands of feet up) then just vanished. It was if they knew they were spotted and took off. I said to my husband I think we just saw a UFO. Then we both felt scared and ran inside.

I know it was not a plane. They don't stand still and always have some flashing light and it was not a helicopter, there was no noise at all. I do live 5 minutes from Pax River Navy base so planes and helicopters come and go all hours of the day and usually shake my house. `Again this was silent, and looked to me like a bright close planet that just vanished.
