Bright white glowing object in the southern sky

At about 9:45pm last night my wife and I were out looking at stars particularly Venus. At about that time I looked up to see Saturn. All of a sudden to the south almost straight up, I saw an object light up as bright as Venus and about the same white color. This was very bright and seemed very high in the sky. I told my wife, what is that? At that moment it reduced the bright white glow to almost nothing. I could however still see it. I didn't see any flashing lights nor did it change colors. It was like a hot amber color that was very dim and slowly traveled south east. I wondered if it was a satellite but I have never in all my years saw a satellite that lit up like that. Also it must be generating some large energy source to be that bright at that altitude. Very strange..
