Bright disappearing UAO

My son went for a bike ride up the road, he noticed what he thought was a bright star to the west northwest about 40 deg high stopped and looked at it because he thought it to bright and large for a star. it was not moving and as he watched it just faded out and disappeared.

He ran in the house all excited to tell me, so of coarse I ran outside and hung out for a while, nada.
The Moon was southeast and really bright, sky was clear with some high altitude ice clouds I was making sure that he didn’t see a star or planet go behind the clouds. he was sure that was not the case and told me it was large and really bright and that he saw it freakin disappear.

Till next time
