Slipping into bed when I noticed a distant bright which stopped, moved back, wiggled, and faded out

Noticed a satellite
I was slipping into bed when I noticed what I first thought was a planet, then I thought was a satellite, then it stopped moving and I thought it was just a planet again and I was seeing things. It was a shimmering white like a planet but maybe more pure white than a normal planet, it seemed to dim slightly at some points. It appeared to move then stop which made me look closer. After a while it move back horizontally and moved around a bit, at one point it did a side ways U shape in the air. Moved vertically then would appear motionless for minutes. It appeared to wiggle around at some points like a red bot laser on a wall, very subtle motion. Once it moved somewhat violently after being motionless almost spiraling around then moving horizontally to the north. At some points when it appeared motionless I thought I was seeing things, but once I moved my self so It was just out of view of the window and it moved into my view through the window again. Finally it began dimming and nearly disappeared becoming more bluish. It moved around a little while dimmed and blueish then began to brighten a little. It dimmed again and I think it brightened and bit once more then disappeared completely. First dimmed to maybe 5% then brightening to 50%, dimming back to 5% and going back up to maybe 35%, then 5% then maybe 25% then fade to black. I watched it for 20 minutes to half an hour. It moved like it had no inertia or momentum. It certainly did not move like any aircraft I know. It was north west of me at maybe 300į as I look through the window in the back most room in my house on 9107 New York 5&20 in West Bloomfield, New York. The time was approximately 1:00am to 1:30am, September 20th, 2022. It was overcast. I woke my girlfriend up to show her and she said she saw three lights. She also said maybe they are stars. She was very tired and not happy to be awoke and was not interested. She is still asleep and I have not asked her about it yet. The motion was subtle but noticeable if you were watching it. It didnít seem like it was moving around far enough or fast enough for someone driving a car or doing something other than looking up at the sky in a north west direction to notice. I am certain it was not an airplane or helicopter. I do not think it was a drone. I know it was not a satellite, planet, Star, comet, or any astronomical object like that.
