slow, star like image that slowly faded away

I'm not sure what I witnessed - don't want to say it was a UFO but it was strange. I set my alarm for 4:30 am to observe the meteor shower on 11/18/01. Went outside, sat down, and watched the sky for about 10 -15 minutes. I noticed a star-like object that appeared to be moving very slowly (like a slow airplane)to the south west of my home. At first, I thought it was an airplane but then realized that it was WAY too high to be an airplane so then I thought that it could maybe be a meteor but it was too slow for that - plus didn't have a tail. I watched the object move across the sky and curve back to the right and disappear (or fade out) beside a star. I thought that it was weird, as I have never seen anything like that before. I waited about 10 more minutes to see if I could see it again but it never came back. I got the creeps and went inside! I wouldn't mind being contacted regarding this sighting, but not sure if it's anything exciting enough to prompt investigation.
