I saw a horizontal moving star?

I just saw a moving star for about 5-10 seconds and it went faint and faint until it disappears. Was it really a moving star? Does a moving star exist or it’s just my perception that there is a moving star and I perceived it as a moving star. That is how I was taught in my school days. Was it a satellite? This question seems more of logical to me. What do you say? I was looking at the sky. Then suddenly a star (my perception) come to the partition of the sky I was looking at and then it was moving horizontally, parallel to the ground. It looked bright somewhat like an extra star with a bit more of brightness. It moved straight, parallel and horizontal if the partition is considered as a view plane. I even prayed what I wanted my life to be, looking at it because in Nepal we have a belief if you see a shooting star and wish for something then it gets fulfilled though it was not a falling star. I have seen falling star seven times in duration of 10 minutes approx. I think 3-4 months before and approximately the same time as today. About the shape, I think practically it didn’t had a shape but if I have to be specific then I would choose to say it was like star, a big point in the graph. I could have easily slept rather to research on internet to share what I saw today. But I choose to wake up still and its 4:45 am now. I would like to know if any expert has some points to explain me what was that because I’m very much interested in space and its infinite property.
