Orange/White light changing from extremely bright to nothing

My wife and I were sitting on our porch and I observed a bright white/orange light in the sky seemingly pretty far away. It caught my eye because it wasn’t there at one point. The light would get very bright, like Venus, and then dim to nothing. There was no timing I could get out of it and sometimes it would do it 2-3 times a minute or disappear for 5-10 mins then reappear. I was outside the night before (9/19) and noticed the light in the same patch of sky but didn’t observe it so I chocked it up to being a star. I grabbed my binoculars to try and get a better look but couldn’t see much more. When it got bright there looked like a haze around it. Possibly a cigar/tictac shape but not sure.
