Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1 minute
Small satelite object that moved, stopped and faded away.

A very small white light (the size of the planets in the sky right now). The light started to move from directly overhead, due west to within appx 2 thumbs away from the moon (on the NE side of the moon), then stopped, faded and disappeared. This was VERY high in the sky, possibly like an orbiting satelite. However satelites usually don't move, stop and disappear from vision. No noise, like I said, too far away for any of that.
