A birght light over South Manchester U.K.

I saw a bright light in the sky directly overhead. I live near manchester international airport so I thought it may be a plane until I notice no flashing lights on it (e.g. red and green flashing lights). It was just a brilliant light travelling from west to east very quickly. The object seemed to rise then veer off to the right and then suddenly vanished?
