a slow moving light too far to be an airplane that faded away

I went outside to smoke my last cigarette of the day and i was staring up into the nights sky when i noticed an object that resembled an airplanes flight pattern. It was moving slow and in a straight line. But the first thing i noticed funny about it was that it was soooo far away. Even a plane traveling at its highest distance from the surface of the earth has some distinctive shape to it. and usually has a few lights on it to where you can make out the wings. Well this object I saw looked as if it was a very distant star. It was faint but definately visible with the naked eye. I just followed its flight until it just faded away very slowly. At first i thought mabye it was a very high plane that just went into some cloudy haze and that was the reason for it fading away, but when you look over a little more i could see every other star in the sky with the naked eye. I waited to see if it was going to come out of this unseen cloud but it never resurfaced . It simply went away. Now I'm not saying it was a UFO but for one its distance, its speed, and it just fading away makes it a little suspicious. It could have been an asteroid or some large rock or ice flying through space having the suns light reflected on it. But unless there is documentation of such an event it will still remain a mystery to me.
