A light the shape and size of the moon moving East to West across the Suther sky about 5 to 10 degrees above horizon in the AZ desert

Tonight at 7:45 my wife and I were sitting outside at our Arizona desert homestead. Our property is approximately 2 1/2 miles north of Interstate 10. I was looking South when I noticed a large circular light moving East to West. The size of the object was very close to the size of a full moon and was about 5 to 10 degrees above the Southern horizon. The light moved West for about a second (after I first observed it) and made a very sharp turn to the South and disappeared in a band of clouds. For the next 20 to 30 miuntes I kept watching the Souther sky but made no other observation. I was very impressed by the size of the object as well as the color. It was an almost exact dublicate of a silvery full moon.
