A visual distortion of objects in night sky buy "cloaked" object

I work 3rd shift at a rehab facility on Lay Springs Rd. On the night of the "event", during my walk across campus, I was looking up at the night sky when I noticed a portion of the sky appeared to be distorted visually. Initially I considered the fact that it could be my eyes but when two of the stars moved from behind the "distortion" it was clear that an object in the sky was causing the effect.
Within seconds it moved into empty space with nothing behind it from my vantage point and wasn't seen again.
I remember feeling a tingle in my body, but likely due to the cold and seeing (not seeing) this object.
Object was translucent but distorted 3 stars and what I believe was Venus leading me to believe this thing was in our atmosphere based on the number of astrological bodies distorted at once.
Deer in field ahead of me ran off, but could have been due to my presence, even though I wasn't as close as close to them as I normally was when they typically run off.
