a disappearing star in the night?

i had been outside in back garden,at 23:00 and glanced up at the sky and noticed a enlarged star in the sky, size approx, if you place your little finger up in the air and look through one eye it was the size of the your little fingernail.

as i watched it receded very fast, too fast for any type of aircraft we possess, until it disappeared, definately moving away from earth. i have thought of the possibility of a star dying, but have checked the net for sightings or confirmation of this and found nothing. its easy to say it was a reflection of a car headlight or some other rational explanation, but then i thought i wanted to leave the explanation open to other possibilties? i,m not sure what i saw but its made me think and consider that there may be more to life than we think there is.
