Small, slow-moving white point that faded in and out very slowly

At approximately 8:30 PM, I sighted a small white light heading SE from the North. It would become very bright for four seconds, then fade away into blackness; it would disappear for around five seconds, then fade back into brightness; each time it would get dimmer, until it was no longer visible. No additional or flashing lights were observed on the object. It was moving at a similar rate as to a satellite in orbit. Suspected to be space debris spinning in orbit and catching the glare from the sun.
