white starlike object travelling at speed west to east no sound

i saw a starlike object moving from the west to the east at approximately 21:05 pm .

it was travelling in a perfectly straight line at speed and there was no sound whatsoever (sattelite?)

((NUFORC Note: We observe that the International Space Station passed just south of the UK, traveling from west to east, at 20:52-22:58 hrs. on this date. For ground track details, please see the following page at <www.Heavens-Above.com>:

We are not certain that the witness observed the ISS, but it looks to us to be a strong possibility. PD))
