|White light moved north to south and faded out.
Looked up in the sky just before bedtime while waiting on the dog to pee and saw what appeared to be a bright star or planet. The light was white and did not blink. At first I did not notice it moving and did not give it much thought and looked away. However, my eyes were drawn back to it as I saw it move from north to south and fade out. I have seen many meteors (was awake for the Leonid showers) and this was moving too slow for a meteor...although, at that altitude (not sure but it seemed way up there) it must have been moving along. Thought maybe it was a satellite that just happened to catch the sun reflecting off of it but I then saw two airplanes move in that direction. Those were easy to identify since they had the traditional blinking lights. The two planes appeared to be at the same altitude and moving in the same direction as the white light was moving. I live about 2 miles from the southern lake erie shoreline and everything was moving from north to south.
