The disappearing star you observed could be a result of it being a variable star or due to an occultation by a passing satellite. Variable stars can change in brightness, while occultations occur when an object blocks the star's light momentarily. While rare, these phenomena can occur in the night sky. If you have more observations or information, consulting with local astronomy groups may provide further insights.
