Bright white light covered surface object moving very slowly towards northwest

At approximately 10 pm, 5/27/18, my wife and I departed a relative’s residence in San Antonio, FL, to return to our home 6 miles to the east in Dade City, FL. As I stepped out I noticed what I thought was a very bright star, brighter than any other stars in the night sky. I commented how bright it was to my wife and two relatives. We began to question if the object was a star, and noted that the object was moving very slowly. One of the relatives got their binoculars and each of us used them in an effort to identify the object. Each of us said the object appeared to have some type of very bright white lights surrounding its entire surface, with my wife’s sister describing the lights as being arranged in a diamond pattern. We continued watching the object for about 5 minutes and then my wife and I headed home.

Upon arriving home 15-20 minutes later, I looked toward the west and spotted the object. It was moving very slowly toward the north, at about 40-50 degrees above the horizon. I attempted to photograph the object using a telephoto lens, however, without the aid of a tripod the photograph is not sharp, and is not a good representation of what 4 of us observed. I watched the object until it disappeared beyond the horizon.
