On Friday 28/10/22 7:30pm I saw a very fast white light fly past a plane the object was moving east to west close to the horizon

Between 7:00-7:30pm on Friday night I was smoking a cigarette on my back veranda in Jamboree heights, Australia. Whilst smoking my cigarette I was watching a plane coming in for landing at either the Brisbane Airport (BNE) or the Archerfield Airport (ACF). The plane was about 20° from the horizon travelling towards me, as the plane was travelling towards me a equally bright white light or slightly brighter flew just past the plane travelling the full distance of the sky moving east to west. It took about 5 seconds for the object to make a full pass of the sky clearly moving at some intense speed. The object flew very close to the plane almost looking as if they would collide until it passed by, I believe this may have been a line of sight illusion. I first believed that the object was a satellite or maybe the ISS but the intensity of its light seemed to throw me off. It could have been a meteor or shooting star but I have seen many of them before in my life and none ever had this bright of a light, or ever had a solid consistent light as it travelled.
