A yellow light over Split (Croatia - Europe)

That night while I was looking at the cloudy night sky and I noticed a yellow light SE of the City of Split. I am an amateur astronomer so I looked through my telescope (20x magnification) towards the object.

At first I thought I was looking at Venus but then I realized that the sky was cloudy. There was no star, planet or some other extraterrestrial object visible! I looked through my telescope again (now at 250x magnification) and the object was not moving at all. Now I was convinced that I was not looking at anything natural.

The object was hovering 1500m from the ground (or so) for 8 minutes. After that 8 minutes it simply disappeared.
