|Fast, white, solid light
I'm usually skeptical about these, but I saw a curious light this evening around 9:30pm. My wife saw it and said "probably a plane". But I had watched 4 other aircraft fly overhead and this object was different. It was about a third as bright as Venus and maybe about 2/3 the size. It looked like a star, definitely had an altitude greater than any of the aircraft I'd seen. Just a bright, white light. What was odd to me was that it moved at a much greater speed than any of the aircraft.
I saw it coming from the southern horizon, moving smooth and fast, it disappeared over the northern horizon only 10 seconds later. I've never seen anything that high cover that much ground in such a short amount of time. I thought possibly satellite, but south to north? Weird. The other weird thing is that every plane I've ever seen had at least some sort of blinking lights, even if only one. This was a single, solid white light.
