single bright light travelling over Derbyshire

I usually go outside each evening, to the back of my house for a cigarette, and often find myself staring up to the sky watching the planes pass over.

This particular evening there were a few small clouds around, but the moon was clearly visible. I noticed in the sky a rather intense light travelling in a north easterly direction. I first thought it was just another plane, but there didn't appear to be any visible flashing lights, so I looked around in the sky and noticed a few planes travelling in different directions, all with some flashing lights visible. I couldn't make out a shape, but all I remember was how bright the light was, it looked like a brightly lit star, never changed direction or speed.

Really strange, never seen something like that before.
