Orb travels across the sky looking identically like a moving star, Object vanishes after 2 minutes

On the 1st of January 2013 (Yesterday) @ around 9:20PM I was outside having a cigarette, alone & looking at the stars above. There wasn’t a single cloud in the sky. I noticed something about half way through the cigarette, a little tiny light in the sky appeared from the right side of the Eastern night time sky..

My first impression was “It’s probably a plane” But I noticed the tiny orb that looked EXACTLY like a star,(And had no flashing lights of any kind) It was moving across the sky a little faster than an airplane usually fly’s. The altitude of the orb seemed way too high for a plane to physically reach. There was absolutely no sound around whatsoever.

The orb traveled towards the left side of the Eastern skies, moving in a strange pattern, I guess the most accurate word for it would be “Semi-Zig Zag patterns” After watching it for a good 2 minutes, It slowly disappeared as it made a turn going even HIGHER into the nighttime sky.

(At this point I knew for sure what I saw was NO airplane, & certainly NOT a comet) The object was also both accelerating and slowing down a few times, but not drastically. It shined a bright light that made it look like a “perfect star” about half way through the sky. Then slowly began to fade towards the end of the second minute.

I checked several times after, & stared at the sky where it disappeared, hoping to see it again, but it never came back.
