Location: Chattanooga, TN
Shape: Light
Duration:~ 1 min
Close bright light travelled across a south to north-northeast flight path

On my back porch on a humid night. Notice a bright light moving too fast for civilian aircraft, and much too close and bright on the horizon to be a satellite. Object was traveled almost SW-N - NE in a straight path. No sound or typical blinking lights associated with aircraft were observed. This was a very hazy night out. Could hardly see constellations other than ursa major. This light looked much too close to be a satellite.
