bright star-like moving object turning into bright light, then vanishes to the stars again

We were visiting family in WV and had a camp fire going and heating marshmallows. While stairing at the stars, I noticed a line to the west of us of airplanes flying into DC direction, but a little later directly North of us, I was looking to the stars and noticed a very slow moving star. Thinking it was just a satellite, like you can see a star-like object moving at times, but this one got brighter. When I pointed it out, it kept getting brighter and bigger. It past directly over us and we kept watching it. There were no lights blinking on it; just a very bright light that was no longer just a star. We continued to watch it and it then moved toward the stars and then vanished south of us, where we could not even see a faint light either. It was topic of discussion all night and I even stayed out longer to see if it came back; it never did come back. I wish I knew what it was.
