Strange pulsing fireball low on the horizon.

My mother and I witnessed a pulsing fireball object low on the western horizon at 9:40 p.m. It was stationary for about five minutes, then slowly proceeded to gain altitude and travel at a high rate of speed eventually turning white. It made absolutely no sound.
