Ball of light moving across the sky

I went outside to smoke a cigarette and as im sitting in my front yard i usually look at the stars and noticed the full moon last night wasn't in the same part of the sky so i walked out in the road looking around for the moon and i saw a ball of light it just looked like a star but very bright i kept looking for the moon trying to see if it was behind the trees and i looked back at the light and noticed it wasn't in the same spot it was farther too the right and so i stared at it for a few seconds and could see it was moving in one direction i continued looking at it for a few more seconds then ran inside to grab my binoculars and ran back out and looked at the light through my binoculars but it was too bright to make out any definitive features so i ran and grabbed my mom to get her to come see it by this time it has moved all the way across the sky but was still visible and as me and her got out side to watch it it was only visible for around 8 more seconds then it blinked out and completely vanished like the light it was emitting dimmed because it was very bright white then got dimmed down too a redish orange color that wasnt bright at all then disappeared. I also want to say i see satellites and planes all the time im always trying to see the ISS fly by but this thing was way too bright and seemed to be too low in altitude to be a satellite and planes make noises and they always have some kind of signal lights that are flashing and i also dont think this was a drone because i looked at it with my binoculars and it was so bright i couldn't see details.
