A moving object which possibly changed speed and direction in an unorthodox manner

I was walking into a local video store and looked up into the skies like I frequently do ever since my father introduced my to the idea of catching a satellite every now and again. I still look for them for fun. I was facing south and I looked directly overhead and immediately saw a bright star-like object (about as bright as Venus or a high flying jet if it is coming at you from a distance) which was moving at a normal pace (for a jet) in a direct southward trajectory until it slowed and then stopped. It did not stop abruptly, but slowed first. The light then just slowly faded out, getting smaller and smaller until it was no longer visible (this took about 3 to 4 seconds). While the behavior of the object and the fading light most likely has an orthodox explanation of which I am ignorant, the event seemed somewhat signifigant. NOTE: I am requesting contact from an investigator with this report due to events in my past and NOT for this individual sighting, as well as an general exchange of information.
