White light over the ocean at York Beach Maine

Stationary light over ocean off York beach Maine. Very very bright white light. Appeared to be about five miles out over Atlantic and appeared while it was still daylight. At first it didn't move at all, as a planet or star or satellite moves. Remained stationary for a half an hour, then headed due south, slowly, away from my vantage point. As it moved away it remained just as bright as when it first appeared.

During this time I saw commercial aircraft with navigation lights over the ocean in the same general area but their lights were faint and difficult to see.

By comparison to the navigation lights, the white light was extremely bright and very large. Couldn't have been landing lights of an aircraft as the object, whatever it was, was completely stationary for such a long period of time, then moved in a straight line away from me.
