At least for you it winked on and off. Back in March of 2010 it actually slid across the sky and just winked out for me. Was quite startling to say the least as I had been watching it in the same place for many mornings rise and just do its planet thing...
...It probably slid a good 6 inches across my windshield before it winked out and that is quite a distance to cover in space I would imagine. I know what I saw and I'll never for get it.
