Yellowish light moving through early morning sky - no sound, no strobes

While out for my morning walk around the neighborhood I noticed a light moving through the sky from northwest to southeast. It was a bright light, yellowish in color and brighter than any of the stars I could see in the sky at the time. It reminded me of Mars but larger and brighter.

The light was a constant color and did not have any pulsation or change color throughout my observation of it. At first I thought it might be an airplane with its landing lights on heading into the Boise airport about 20 miles east of me but as it went overhead there was no sound and no strobes usually seen on airplanes.

After it passed me, I could still see the same color and intensity of the light even though I was now behind it. I could not tell its altitude or even guess at it. It looked like a super bright yellowish star moving through the sky.

I lost sight of it behind some trees but then after clearing the trees spotted it again farther southeast of me. Then it brightened slightly and then faded and disappeared.
