a big star-like like that closed from one side to the other, not reappearing

I went out back for a ciggarette as I often do, looking up at the sky. Immediately after lighting my ciggarette I noticed something unusual, right off the handle of the little dipper. Thinking to myself, is that a big star, a plane ... probably a plane. I began to watch it to see if it moved. However, without moving, it merely 'closed' from my left to right, as if someone holding a flashlight turned away from me. I kept watch for nearly 15 minutes without any other site of this.

Keep in mind, this was little more than twice the size of any other star in the sky.
