Fast white dot.

Driving eastbound on I-5 near Ritzville, Wa. Saw a single white dot of light, similar to a satellite, moving south to north in an arc at about 30 degrees above the horizon. It was too fast to be a satellite or aircraft, but too slow to be a meteor. No flashing beacons, so not an aircraft. Looked similar to the ISS, but moved faster and south to north instead of West to East. Went out of sight below the horizon. Possibly space debris upon re-entry???

((NUFORC Note: Possible satellite in polar orbit?? PD))
