11:30 PM, 5-18-14. I went outside on the back porch. The sky was clear, there was unlimited visibility. I looked to my left towards the western sky and observered a constellation that looked like a backwards question mark. It was about 20 degrees of elevation at the bottom reaching up to 30 degrees at the top of it in the sky. I thought to myself how much this resembeled the big dipper to some degree but there was no star at the end of the constellation pointing away from the southern most star (map direction) to make a scoop. Then, the star at the southern most part( map direction POV) at the bottom of the formation which had the same brightness and intensity as the other stars in the group moved away towards the right in a straight horizontal line. It quickly dimmed out while moving at a slow constant speed and heading in about 3 seconds and dissapeared. I was a bit unnerverd by this. I did some research and identiified this constellation as Leo. The "star" that moved and winked out was sitting there at the end of the formation.
