Bright object was stationary in the sky and all of a sudden disappeared

My wife and I were sitting on the patio at 8:45 p.m. May 29th 2022, facing towards the east. I am an amateur astronomer for 56 years and as I was looking at the sky I noticed a golden orange star object approximately 50 to 55° in the East Northeast sky. It made no sound and kept a steady brightness. My wife noticed this object with me and we said, this is the first star out tonight. We kept talking and looked back at the object at 8:50 p.m., and it was still glowing in the sky. It was the same color, but all of a sudden, within 10-15 seconds, it vanished. There was no movement in any direction, it didn't change brightness, it looked the same as it did 5 minutes prior, it was in the same position, but it just vanished. My wife and I were in disbelief, we had no idea what we had just seen. It was not the star Arcturus or any other celestial object. We had an unobscured clear sky that evening.
