Not the ISS and not a Meteor??

Tonight 01/09/2016 at approximately 7:15pm I was outside trying to set up my telescope for some astro photography (I am about 25 klms south of Adelaide) when a saw a light slowly make it's way from the south east toward the north west, I have watched the space station and have seen many meteors but this was different, It was probably twice as bright as the ISS and heading in the opposite direction, it started near the Southern cross and was quite bright until it got close to scorpius then it dimmed for a bit then was gone, It didn't fade out of view and when it changed magnitude it wasn't gradual it just went from being bright to being dim and when it vanished from my view it was just as though the light was turned off, does any body know what this may have been
