bright white light moving erratically leaving light trails

Last night I saw a very bright white light in the SSE sky. It appeared to be moving or jumping, so I took my binoculars out to observe. The light was very high in the sky and moved erratically in all directions while staying in one general area. The object left light trails, so it looked like light squiggles. The object continued to move like this for about 10 minutes, when it started to move further away and became fainter. It was moving erratically the entire time until it disappeared into the distance.
