Bright white light moving slowly and silently across the sky, then disappearing above the trees.

It was just getting dark as I got in my truck while parked on the edge of a field. I was facing east and over the woods to my right I noticed a really bright ball of white light moving slowly to my left. At first I was thinking it was an airplane but the bright light would have been pointed in the direction that it was moving, it was pointed in the opposite direction , behind it... with beams of light coming from the ball of light looking like spokes of a wheel. It was so quiet out there in that farm field... there was absolutely no sound coming from it, nothing...I then hopped out of the truck to take video of it and realized my cell phone was in the truck charging so I ran back and grabbed it, turned on the phone and tried to start the video and noticed it was getting dimmer and seemed to get lower, then I lost sight of it completely as I pressed the start button ... like it disappeared into some low clouds. Airplanes make noise and comets move fast and! leave a tail of fire behind them, this was neither. It truly was the strangest thing I have ever witnessed in my 45 years of life.
