Bright light over Western Salt Lake moves across the sky then vertically and disappears.

I noticed a bright light in the Western sky and watched it for a moment thinking it was an airplane. The light was very bright white.

I looked closer to see if I could make out any red or green port and starboard lights, but there were none visible. The light moved across the sky at about the speed of a plane, but then suddenly moved vertically and the light started to fade and then disappear. It happened within about 10 seconds.

My cell phone stopped working briefly (for about 10 seconds) after the light disappeared.

This even occurred over the Oquirrh Mountains from my perspective on the East bench of the Salt Lake Valley.
