Bright Light Over Grand Rapids Michigan

I looked out of my window and, to the southwest, I noticed a bright-white light. At first, I thought it was a plane (since we have an airport in the general vicinity), but after a second or two, I realized that it had no blinking lights on the wings.

I then listened for a sound... There was none. The speed at which it was moving was also in question: it was slow and methodical...about 5-10mph at best. As it climbed overhead, it began to fade, until there was nothing left to be seen…
