Light appeared over mountain

I was outside watching meteor shower when a very bright light appeared over the mountain in front of me. It hovered there for awhile and then went down behind the mountain. Then it would reappear and go back down. It repeated this for quite awhile. It finally came back over the mountain and just stayed in one place for a loooong time. It would get very bright and then so dim that you could barely see it. It slowly went across the sky and stopped. There were clouds coming in and it would get covered in the clouds but didn't move other than getting brighter and dimmer it looked exactly like a star. I watched it until the sun started coming up and I couldn't see it anymore.
