a bright light and no sound

It was Saturday night and very clear and dry. I was out back stargazing with my telescope. I looked up to see a bright light approach out of the south. The object seemed low as if on a approach to land. As I observed the object I did not hear any sound or see other lights. As it crossed my line of sight it went behind some trees and still appeared like a aircraft on approach. At this point seemed to be ascending off into the northeast. My vantage point did not allow me to see the object after this point

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the object may have been the ISS, but we cannot access www.heavens-above.com to confirm. That site is down, for the moment. PD))
