Saw a slow moving bright star-like yellow,white light mid-sky that pulsated bright and dim and drifted towards the horizon

I was using the computer, when lines came across the screen and there was a lot of interference. So I turned-off the computer, and turned off the lamp, and headed downstairs. The hallway was dark, and as I passed by the north-facing window, I saw a bright light outside, above the tall trees jsut west of the window. I thought that it was one of the bright planets that are visible in the west this time of night, and stopped to look at it. But, it moved. The movement was slow - lazy - like drifting in the sky. The light pulsated - growing very bright - then dimming - and then growing very bright again. It moved from high to low, sort of drifting down in an arc. The direction of movement from here, was toward the town of Grand Junction north and west).When the light pulsed bright, it was as bright as Venus is now. When dim, could barely see it. Color - yellow-white. Size - not as large as Venus - more like the size Jupiter is now. Only saw it travel a short distance(don't know how many meters - can tell you that it was from the top of the trees to just before Redlands Mesa norht of me. Just couldn't see any light at that point. When I could no longer see it, I went downstairs and looked at the clock - 21:20. What did I see? Was this a space station? Was the pulsating light from the sun shinning on it when in certain positions? Why did it appear to be moving so slowly - drifting? It was intriging. I would really like to know what this object was. Thanks.
