Just a light

I went out onto my back porch to smoke a cigarette after SportsCenter, I was just looking to the NW when a light started to appear like a flashlight having a cover of some type being pulled up from in front of it, the bottom? of the light appeared first. It got about as bright as a streetlight, and at first I though that was what it was. It was to low and silent to be an aircraft. As I kept watching it it seemed to sort of slowly and almost imperceptibly bob, for a couple moments I was wondering if it was me rather than the light that was moving, then it moved to my left behind some trees and I lost sight of it. It was just the one light, like a streetlight no craft that I saw. I am a college student and fulltime cook and have never seen anything tnat I would call a UFO before.
