Bright Light High in sky moving north to south

I am a computer programmer living in Houston. I was at my office off of Enclave Pkwy on the westside of Houston. It was dark and the time was about 6:30 pm. The sky was clear and the temperature was about 60 degrees. I was standing outside waiting for my ride and I was looking up at the stars when I noticed a very bright white light very high in the sky moving north to south. I watched light move across the sky for about 10 seconds before it faded out. Light was moving too slowly to be a meteor. I first observed light directly overhead and the light traversed approx. 45 degrees of sky in approx. 10 seconds before fading out. The size of the light was about the same as the surrounding stars.
