Very bright, white light that hovered/moved with ease. Travel distance very fast. No sound.

I walked outside to have a smoke right before 1 am and was just admiring the stars. One ďstarĒ in particular was very bright in comparison to the others. After a few moments, I noticed that it was moving slightly, but hovering in place, almost fixed in one spot. As Iím realizing itís actually moving, I notice that it gets dimmer and then bright again, almost like itís traveled a distance away and then came back. I tried to rule out every ďpossibleĒ other aircraft and could not identify it with anything Iíve ever seen before. It light was a very bright white and there was absolutely no sound, the only thing I could pick up on the video was the cicadas and crickets in the background, which was oddly, super loud now that Iím thinking about it. I went inside to grab my two friends and it was still there. We all tried observing it through some pretty high powered binoculars but the light was too bright and it moved too fast to really focus on it. We all watched it for over two hours.
