|Apparent star changes color and moves then winks out.
I went outside to see if the sky was clear enough to do some observing with my telescope. I looked to the south & saw what I thought were 2 stars, when the lower one changed color from white to orange/red, when it began to move upwards in the direction of the top star (which I later identified as Sirius). As it moved closer to Sirius, it started to dim, until it went out altogether.
