11/23/00 2300 Palm Desert, Ca. Dull white object crossing from horizon to horizon in 5 sec.

Back yard walking my dogs,cloudless sky, looking at stars in the desert. Living in L.A., sky is not as dark for viewing. Moving Southwest to Northeast at a very rapid speed, a dull white object moved from horizon to horizon in about 5 seconds. Holding my arm out at full length to the sky, the object was the size of my thumb. This was not any aircraft, as their were planes on approach to Palm Springs airport, also, no spot lights advertising anything on Thanksgiving. No sound was emitted.
