Walking out to my barn to feed my horses,and gazed at the sky noticing that it was a very clear night and the stars were brilliant and twinkling as they usually are on cold clear nights. Happened to see a very bright orange "star" about 15 degrees directly below the north star.(Polaris) I didn't pay too much attention to it until I was returning to the house and noticed that it was brighter that the planet Venus but more orange in color. I stopped and watched it for about 10 minutes and it dawned on me that I had never seen or noticed such a star in that location and I knew that no planets track that far north in the sky. After going back inside, I mentioned it to my wife and we looked out the window and it was still there. About 10
minutes later,I received a phone call from a friend who lives about 40 miles east of me and I told him about it, and asked if he could see it. He went outside and confirmed that he also saw it. I asked him if he had a sky map app on his smartphone and he did. He pointed the sky map at it and no identified stars showed up on the app. While we were talking, I decided to get my camcorder and film it, but I was too late. He, all of a sudden said that the darn thing just disappeared. It blinked out. I immediately walked back outside and sure enough it was gone.
