Bright gold color light that flew west to east.

I was loading my 5 year old into my wife's car for daycare when I noticed a bright gold light in the constellation Taurus(that is where I first seen it) I brought it to my wife's attention. We watched it fly over, and agreeded it was not a normal aircraft(live near airport) the light never changed color, and when it was overhead, the lights were still the same, overall, and uniform(unlike aircraft, where when it passes, you can id the different lights)continued to watch as it flew over my house. My wife left at this point, and I ran in the house I grabbed my binoculars. I was able to view it from my back yard(facing east) for a few moments before it disapeared from my line of sight(My house is on the backside of a slope, facing away from Boise City.) Through binos, object still appeared as a gold colored light, ball shaped) Unable to determine elevation, but would guess it was flying around 5-10 thousand feet. No noise was noticed. Total time of observation was approx 2 to 3 minutes. Object never strayed off of straight line projectory. Incident occurred approx 1/2hr before sunup.
