Kevin, You saw an occultation. In a true *grazing* occultation, the star disappears and reappears more than one time, typically over a period of less than a minute. Since the star you were observing disappeared for only five minutes, you would have been able to see a graze not very far south of your location. Back in SAC's salad days, trips were organized in which large groups of us would set up at regularly spaced stations along a graze path, and do timings that could be used to refine the profile of the moon's limb.
