Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Bright light

Looked up to watch airplanes, we are in a major air traffic lane. Saw a bright object moving slowly southeast. I've seen many satellites, and this object moved like one except it was at least as bright as Venus. I have never seen a satellite that bright. The nearly full moon was in the sky at the time. The light was bright white much like venus, no yellow tint like an aircraft. The light was not flashing. The light also extinguished quickly, usually satellites fade out as they near the horizon. Maybe it was the space station?
