Large Bright Light - Alabama

On Thursday January 26, 2017, at approximately 19:10 (+/-5), while looking in the WSW sky (240 degrees) I and two others were looking at Stars, Constellations and Mars/Venus. After showing them Mars/Venus using my Astro-Binoculars, I looked up (naked eye) and we all saw a second bright light (as bright as and appeared as large as the size of Venus (in the night sky) and it covered Mars.

It traveled towards our direction (1 second) and then turned left (3-4 seconds) as the bright light faded away. As Private Pilot, I quickly noticed no navigational lights (Red/Green/or Red/White Flashing light).
