Craft with intense white light

I was out in the backyard on the phone and happened to locate what I thought was a star, moving at a speed faster than an airliner. It came from the northwest traveling to southeast. As I was about to lose sight , it suddenly turned into an intense white light for about 10 seconds, almost like a spotlight and then dimmed back to its original star appearance. It could have been a satellite, but I have never seen an intense light come from one like that before.
