Shape: Light
Duration:5-6 seconds
A normal looking star started moving slowly then disappeard after a few seconds.

I was watching the stars and noticed one of the "stars" started moving slowly.

After about 6" of travel (from my perspective) it disappeared.

I am always looking for satellites, but this object was definitely still, then moved slowly and then vanished.

I'm reminded of the scene from Close Encounters of the Third Kind when they were looking up at the Big Dipper in the sky, and then it suddenly started moving towards them, and then broke up into the separate moving lights. This was much like that in appearance.

Thank you.
