While trying to spot Geminid meteors in may subsurban back yard, a 737 came acros our house on the glide path into Love Field. While trying to divert my gaze from its landing lights, I noticed a very dim object about 1 degree of arc in length and of an indeterminate width, moving perpendicular to the path of the 737. It seemed to occult some stars as it travelled (about 1.5 degrees/sec) at an indeterminate altitude. It appeared to have no luminescence except for the faintest shimmer as it moved across the starry sky. It was travelling perpendicular to its longitudinal axis. Its magnitude I would estimate between 4-5. It made no noise. I observed it for about ninety seconds until it was no longer visible. It travelled unidirectionally North-to-South for the duration of its visibility.
