Shape: Light
Duration:4 seconds?
It looked like the light from a satelite.

I'm curious as to whether this may have been a satelite. While watching the stars, I saw a single gold light suddenly appear. At first I thought it was a jet. But it was silent. It moved very slowly after it appeared. Then, after a few seconds, it dimmed and disappeared. It doubt it was a shooting star, because of its slow speed.
