Duration: 30 seconds
Round object traveled straight across the sky and then went straight upward until it disappeared amongst the stars.

I had gone out on my deck to get some air and was looking at the Big Dipper and trying to locate the Little Dipper. I then noticed a bright light, similar to the size of Venus, travelling across the sky in a north to south direction. The speed was similar to that of a satelite or the space station when that passes. The bright light did not have any other lights or flashing. After traveling approximately 1/3 of the viewing area, the light was almost over my head. The object then went straight upward and after about 10 seconds it disappeared.
