Hovering white light that dims then regains full white light while dropping in altitude slowly and then stopping to hover.

Have been watching this huge ball of light for a few weeks now. It shows up periodically then does not show itself for a few days and then returns. Tonight I called my daughter to come witness this event and as she watched along with me it would dim to a red light then shimmer and return to the huge while ball of light.

As we watched it slowly moved lower in the sky while dimming at times and growing back to the white light. We observed this until it was in to the tree lined area. It is still there and not sure what this could be? Seems to be a bit west of Rockford. We did not pursue this in our car to see its location. Would love to know if anyone else in Rockford has reported this or not.
