Was looking at the night sky on a clear night and noticed an object about the brightness of the North star moving West across the sky. The object was moving MUCH faster than a satalite. The object then appeared to gain altitude and gradualy faded from sight. A meteor was dismissed due to the fact it was moving too slow, had no trail, and it gained altitude and disappeared.
