A round light in the sky hovered then moved in a perfect line from one point to another and disappeared

I was leaving my job night job at the Rite Aid drugstore in Green Acres Plaza betwwen 10pm and 10:15 pm. It was January and it was cold, so I was sitting in my car letting it warm up. Incidently, there was no frost, snow, or anything else on my windshield that would impair my vision, or any sight seen through that windshield. I was just staring straight aheadand noticed movement in the sky. A point of very bright light that was about the size that a large planet would appear in the night sky, moved quickly and deliberatly in a perfectly straight, horizontal line from the point it had been sitting at to a point an unknown distance away (it may have moved about a foot if a ruler could be held to the sky). Upon abruptly stopping, it disappeared. I was unsettled as I had never seen anything like this before. It was a point of light in the sky that suddenly and unexpectedly moved. I had watched it remain inanimate for approximately 1 minute before it just took off. It was not a meteorite or shooting star, as these don't move horizontally in such a perfect line, or with such deliberate manner. A plane (of the kind that are seen around here, namely commercial jets) cannot possibly move that quickly. The episode took place in the Eastern sky, the light moved from north to south, and lasted approximately five minutes....
