Star grows brighter then dims and shoots off like a rocket!

At 2100 on 18 May 2007 I had just returned home. My house sits in a rural section of town. I live on top of a hill with three other houses near by. I entered my house and went out on my back deck to get my dog. I went back out the front door with my dog to let her pee and poop one more time before bed. I was playing with my dog when I looked up to the North sky for no apparent reason. I saw what I thought was a star in the North sky at the 3 O'clock position. It looked normal enough and just sat there. All of a sudden the star grew brighter then dimmer and then shot off straight up so fast it was just gone! The weather was completly clear.
