Amber Light Vanishing

I went outside to observe the night sky and after a couple of minutes had wandered up to the end of my driveway near our mailbox. Then, I looked straight up and observed a single dark yellow, amberish light directly overhead drifting slowly toward the north; I was facing south. The light was no bigger than that on an airplane, and would have been at least that high up, however, as soon as I sighted it, it faded away. The duration of the event could not have been more than two seconds between the time I spotted it and the time it vanished, but it _was_ moving visibly northward.
