Large bright light traveling northeast from the area near the planet Jupiter

At exactly 2000 eastern standard time from my home near 077W32'10"and 35N53'48"; I witnessed a bright white light through my binoculars approximately 1.5 times the size of the planet Jupiter, traveling north, north east from an area southwest of the constellation of Sagittarius and the planet Jupiter. The object flew directly overhead. This object flew slowly for about 1 minute covering about 90 degrees or more until the object disappeared out of my field of vision northeast. There was no sound or flashing lights. I was unable to determine the altitude of the object.
