Gliding at fixed pace/position, small point of light gradually grew brighter causing object to appear significantly larger than stars,

At 11:01, I witnessed a small point of white light traveling smoothly across the night sky at a fixed rate of speed and direction. After a few seconds, the object's brightness gradually increased until it appeared as a white oval larger than the surrounding stars. After that, the object dimmed to its original appearance and subsequently disappeared. Sighting ended at roughly 11:03.
