Satalite looking object, changed direction,stopped

It was a clear star filled night about 2330 hrs. My wife and I went to a state park near Jordon Mn. just south of Minneapolis. I noticed what at first I thought was a satalite moving across the sky. However, the object was not traveling in a straight line, and the intensity was growing brighter. Next the object stopped, this really got my attention. This did not behave like any conventional aircraft. I instructed my wife to not lose sight of the object as I ran to the car to get my binoculars. I returned and quickly regained view of object which had the appearence of a bright star. You would have to be looking for this as it was not easily noticeable. To my amazement the object began to move again, this time in a different direction. The object stopped again. Very shortly later it began to move again. Only this time it appeared to be moving out to space as it began to get dimmer and dimmer. I watched it dissapear with my binoculars. It did not dissapear over the horizen, it dissapeared out in to space until it was no longer visable. I was very impressed, much more then my wife.
