Did it just fade out really quickly in disappearing, giving the illusion of disappearing due to speed?
Satellites will disappear as they fall into the Earth's shadow.
Often when this happens, people mistaken their seeing a UFO claim that it's 'cloaked'.
Similarly, people attempting to get the attention of satellites they think are Alien Spacecraft by flashing lasers get over excited when the solar
panels on a satellite catch the sun to create a flaring effect which many interpret as the 'UFO' signalling back at them.
There are 'UFO' Ranches that will charge money by the hundreds of $$$ for peopel to watch UFOs *cough* satellites, where paying customers are told the
UFOs are cloaking, or signalling and other such when in fact it's just satellites doing what satellites do.
It's also not beyond probability that it was actually 2 things you saw; a satellite at first, when when the satellite reached Earth Shadow a meteorite
then coincidentally hit atmosphere at the same apparent position creating the illusion of the satellite zooming off.
This isn't to say that you didn't see a UFO. It's just a position based off of probability since there are so many satellites which are easy to spot,
and at the same time you were indeed out watching a meteor shower.
