Very bright object in eastern sky suddenly disappears while being viewed through binoculars.

On Sunday night, August 16, 2020, shortly before midnight, I took my dogs outside before bedtime . I looked up at the eastern sky and saw a very bright object that I had not previously seen in that location. I watched it for a minute or so, and then went in the house to get my binoculars. When I came back out, the object was still there so I began focusing on it. As I was doing so, the object just suddenly completely disappeared.

I’ve been seeing strange objects in the eastern sky for around 3 years now, but never this bright. Previously, the objects have rapidly moved in ways that typical aircraft cannot (sideways, up and down, etc.). They also appeared to not be stars because sometimes they were there and sometimes they weren’t, whereas other stars and planets are always visible in the same approximate locations.
