Streaking light headed North / North East

It was a very clear night with a full moon. I was standing in my driveway with a friend when we noticed what at first appeared to be a star, but began streaking across the sky headed in northern and slightly eastern direction. My friend thought perhpas it was a satellite. But as the object moved directly overhead, it appeared to grow in size (perhaps descending?) and the light became much more intense and brighter. The object then continued moving northeast and faded in intensity, but moved in a non-linear path, curving from a norhteast path to a northwest path, until it faded from sight.
