looking north over the spires of Gonzaga University sighted a small, pea sized, light travelling west to east approx 45 degrees above the horizon

At 2:30 AM,on 5\21\98, while talking my usual lunchtime walk on the centenial trail between the USPS main annex and Gonzaga University I looked north off the bridge crossing the Spokane River and sighted a lighted objected travelling west to east at approx 45 degrees above the horizon. Est the size to be about the size of a pea held at arms length and of a blueish white color. No noise was heard which is what caught my attention. Also, most aircraft travel in an east west direction as the airport and airbase are southwest of the city. Speed was more consistent with that of a jet coming in for landing - slow and steady - covering approx six inches of sky in, I guess, four seconds. At this point the object simply disappeared - I thought it may have gone behind a cloud but it never reappeared.
