Very fast moving orb, very high up - came to an immediate stop

Noticed what looked like a meteorite in the North end of the sky at night. Was just a light blue illuminated dot. Took 3-4 seconds to fly all the way across the sky. Appeared to be really high up, and travelling incredibly fast, and moved at an arch (not a straight line). At second thought, it looked like a crashing plane. Once it got to the South sky, it came to an immediate stop. At that point, it looked like one of the many stars visible in the sky. Kept watching it for another minute or so, and it did nothing - just looked like any other star. Tried to keep an eye on it as I walked home (I was out walking my dog). Once it became obscured by a tree, I couldn't recall which one it was when I tried to find it again.

In the 3-4 seconds that it was flying across the sky, my thoughts were "Oh cool, a meteorite... No, that is a really low flying plane... No, it is really high... Wait, is it crashing? Wow, that is really moving... IT STOPPED!!!!"
