Shape: Unknown
Duration:7 seconds
Small moving light extremely high in the sky.

It was around 8:30-9pm on either Friday, March 25 or Saturday, March 26. I was sitting on my roof looking at the stars. I see many planes flying, so what I saw next was kind of surprising. As I was looking at the stars I noticed one of them was moving. At first I thought it to be a plane, but as my eyes fixed on the object I realized it definitely not. It was way too high in the sky; it literally appeared to be a moving star. The light was steady. Even when viewed from different perspectives, the light remained constant. It lasted less than 10 seconds and then it simply disappeared.

I have seen many shooting stars (in fact I saw one two days later) and this was definitively not in that category.
