high bright light travelling west, then stopped.

Thursday, Dec. 28, '00. Last night out on my deck I was smoking a cigarette when I looked up into a clear sky and noticed what at first looked like a bright star. After a few seconds I could clearly see it was moving toward the west, I then thought it was an airplane with landing lights on, possibly a jet but it was too high to be landing. I watched it for a while, finished my cigarette, when it stopped. It stayed in one spot for several minutes. I can't understand how a plane could hover in one spot, it was definately much too high to be a helicopter, there was no noise. I have no idea what could do this. After going inside and telling my wife I returned to the deck but it had gone.
