bright high orbit object seen near heathrow england

last night i observed from my back doorstep an object that passed over head at quite a high speed. It was a reasonably clear cool night with good visabilty. There was some cloud but not that much.

I know that the object was very high and due to its looking very much like a shaped star (star in the night sky sense not geometrical) i feel it was either a satelight or something i something else i hope you can exsplain.

It took approx 1-2 mins to traverese across the night sky in and out of cloud cover until it disapeared from site.

Can you confirm if this was a satelight or something else? Did anyone else see this? This light appeared about 20 seconds after a plane heading south had passed overhead.

This object left no trail and was definitaly not a comet, meteor or any form of plane.
