This object coud not have been a jet and it was not a "shooting star".

Early this morning my wife and I were watching the sky light up as there was a storm well off in the distance. In between the flashes of the lightning, we were looking at all the stars. At the same time be both pointed out what at first looked exactly like a star, but this bright object was moving at a constant rate of speed. I thought at first that it was a jet, but it was much too high in the sky to be so. It traveled from north to south and was not blinking like lights on an airplane would be. The object looked exactly like the other stars we were gazing upon. We watched this object travel through the sky - it did not appear to increase nor decrease its speed - until it faded from our view as it came within proximity of another star still well above the horizon.
