Thick bright light travels across southern California then disappears?

I went outside just to look at the night sky for no particular reason, then i saw a thick bright light heading in the direction of north east. It was traveling very slow, at first i thought it was an aircraft, then i realized it had no blinking lights then about 3 seconds later it completely faded away.

I have no idea nor explanation what it could of been, i know i have pretty good judgment to separate fact or fiction, but this light that completely disappear after traveling very slow completely baffled me.
