Object appeared in Draco constellation as bright as star Arcturus then disappeared.

At Approximately 12:24 AM 4/27/2019 in Dayton, Texas, I witnessed something while star gazing. It was in the Northeastern sky in the Draco constellation. In my area the light pollution is around a 6 or 7 on the light pollution scale. I had just backed away from my Celestron 20x80 sky master pro binoculars, when I saw what appeared to be a star grow as bright as the star Arcturus (the fourth-brightest in the night sky, and the brightest in the northern celestial hemisphere.) then fade back out. I quickly jumped back to my binoculars to locate the object, but had no luck. The experience happened for approximately 2 seconds. At the time, the weather was perfect with no clouds in sight. There were no planes in the sky either at the time. I proceeded to checked Calsky.com for possible satellites in the area of sky or for possible flare ups and everything came back clear.
