Large light moving in a pendulum like motion

I came outside with a friend that was visiting to smoke a cigarette and noticed what I initially though was a very bright and large star.

After looking closer, I realized no other stars were visible because it was quite overcast with clouds that night. So I'm looking at it trying to figure out whether it was a plane but it was originally not moving at all, just sort of hovering there.

I called my other friend who was visiting to come outside to see what he thought of it. After he came outside it started maneuvering back and forth from right to left for around a minute.

After the back in forth motion, it started moving back and forth again but this time descending. The motion this time was kind of odd. It almost looked like it was a light on a pendulum being lowered. This motion lasted for around another minute.

Shortly after the light slowly faded out or went behind a cloud and we saw no more of it.
