Bright White Light at Night

Looked up and saw unusually bright white light. It was much brighter than all other stars, etc. At first, I had the unusual sensation that all the stars were moving while this object remained still. It was as bright as a car headlight in the sky, but not clear light, simply white. I always look for flashing lights, and this had none. Also,no noise. Dead silent.

It moved fairly slowly to the north for about a minute or so, seemingly getting farther away (as if gaining altitude). All of a sudden it dimmed to the point that I could only locate it with my peripheral vision. It stayed on it's path, but was barely visible. After another few seconds, I lost it in the very clear night sky.

My thought is that before I noticed it, it must have been lower and directly over my house. Scary. This is the second possible sighting of my life, with about 18 years in between. The older was was a way different scenario, and an apprently different type of craft.

I'm very open-minded, but not stupidly so. There may some explanation for what I saw, but it could have been otherwordly as well. Just kinda weird.
