Bright scooting light just disappears

Observed at a nearly 90 degree angle. As I was looking at the sky, a moving triangularly-shaped light caught my eye. There were no flashing or colored lights, simply one bright light. As it scooted across the sky I tried to peg it as maybe a shooting star (too slow and steady for that), a satellite, or aircraft(questionably large and bright for these objects, also no flashing lights observed). As I was considering the possiblitites, it simply vanished. It did not reappear. No cloud cover this evening; no obstacles in my view.
