Observed what seemed to be a star that would get brighter and normal bright moving west to east, and when overhead it disappeared!

At 9:24pm on August 31, 2011, I went outside for some fresh air. While in my front yard I looked up at the stars for awhile. I looked towards the west at the Big Dipper, and noticed a star that began moving west to east. It passed through the Big Dipper between where the handle and pot meet, or between the 3'rd star of the handle, and the 4'th star (where pot starts). It continued to come closer to me, and as it did it became bright, then back to the brightness of the rest of the stars, and bright again. It continued to get bright and normal bright as it got closer to me. It almost was overhead when another light crossed behind it going south to north. This one changed colors, red, white, yellow, blue, not necessarily in that order. This one was smaller compared to the white light I first observed. After the smaller one crossed behind the white object that remembled a star moving, the white round object simply disappeared! It was if it turned off i! t's white light. The smaller round object disappear about the same time.
