A bright light about the size and distance of Lepus, become immediately brighter, then get very dim as it moved silently, staggered

At approximately 7:47pm est, I was gazing at the Orion constellation when I noticed an orb of white light about the same distance and brightness of Lepus moving in a Northerly direction. It suddenly got extremely bright and stayed that bright for about 2 seconds. Then it immediately dimmed, and continued until it was barely visible. My husband thought it disappeared, but my eye sight is better than his, and I saw it just barely visible as a super dim, tiny light as it became obstructed by our pine tree. I waited to see if it would reappear, but never saw it emerge from beyond our tree. It was completely silent the entire time I observed it, and we observed that it didn't fly in a steady, straight direction. It was very slow, but almost staggered. The flight pattern almost reminds me of an exhausted toddler staggering behind a parent. It was definitely not steady in flight.
