Same object seen two consecutive nights.

On two consecutive nights I witnessed the exact same appearing UFO in the night sky.

The first was on the night of 12/12/18. I was walking to the lower level of our trailer park to retrieve a cooking pot from my Dad. I stopped before descending towards the lower level as I had looked up and saw a light that looked like a star...but was moving! In a southerly direction it moved, slowly but surely. No blinking lights whatsoever; it seemed to be around 5-13 miles up. I'm not able to accurately convey a distance marker, but it definitely had no sentry lights as conventional aircraft have. The light eventually dimmed and disappeared, with no visible clouds in the sky; it just seemed to fade out as it continued the same direction and speed.

Then, on the night of 12/13/18, I was doing the marquee at the movie theater and, to my amazement, I noticed the same exact looking light in the sky! This time it was moving in a more south-easterly direction, but had the same attributes as the one I saw the night previously. The light, this time, did not fade out but disappeared behind the tree line in the southeast.

Observer Note: These two sightings COULD be attributed to a satellite, but seemed far too bright to be such a mundane object such as a satellite.
