|Yellow light moving at very high altitude in the night sky.
We came out of the door to go out to the cinema. While we were getting in the car, I looked up at the stars as the night was clear. I then realised that what looked like a star was actually moving. It looked like a star, but was slightly yellowish in colour. There were no flashing lights & the altitude was far too high for it to be a visible air bus. I would say it was over 100,000 feet high (though I know it's hard to tell) The object moved from West to East (ish). I pointed it out to my partner, who agreed that it was strange. The object then disappeared for a few seconds, only to re-appear what would have been a number of miles away on a similar heading. It then disappeared again after we observed it for another 20 seconds or so. The sky was very clear & the stars were all visible, so cloud cover was at the least minimal. That's about it really, but I'd like to know if anyone else saw anything. The time I have given must be pretty close to the actual time, maybe a few minutes out.
