Yellow-white light hovers before speeding off into the night sky

I look at the sky every evening, and in this way, I'm more familiar with what should be in the sky and where. I went outside after supper and noticed a yellowish-white light at 37 degrees NE and just above the tree-line in the night sky. I stared at it for a long moment because I knew that the light had not been in the sky on previous nights. Then I realized that the light was moving ever so slowly towards the NE. I only took my eyes off of it long enough to look back behind me and call one of my sons to come out. When I turned my head back, I saw the light speed away towards the east faster than anything I've ever seen before.
