Shape: Diamond
Duration:7 seconds
A bright stationary star with a golden glow, then moving from south to north at a quick pace for 7seconds. translucent then dissapeared

Firstly , the night was very clear. It was above fistly stationary, positioned like a star. I thought it was a star until it began to move. It moved from a southerly to a north trajectory. At first I thought it was a satelite, I always like to keep a look out for them, however, this object seemed too bright witha golden glow and travelled at a fast pace. It was faster than a plane but not quite as fast as the satelites I have seen. This object also went in a line. It didnt travel in an axis like I see satellites do. In the objects last moments from sight, it seemed to change transparant then briefly back to a bright glow then translucent then dissapeard.
