Location: Kaitaia (New Zealand),
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Light Seen in Sky in Remote Part of New Zealand.

I was outside this morning in a rural area of the North Island of New Zealand, about 45 minutes away from Kaitaia. It was approximately 6:45 AM just before the sun had come up and I had been looking up at the stars. I looked away for a second and when I looked back I saw one of the stars moving.

It looked like a bright star and it just slowly moved across the sky. No sound or craft was detectable but I imagine the object was very far away. It took about 60 minutes ((sic. Seconds??)) for it to cross the sky. Enough time for me to wake my girlfriend and have her come out and see it as well.

It is possible this was just a satellite and that it wasn't actually stationary but rather came into view when I was looking away and just happened to crossed the path of the stars. There was no blinking or coloration and it was definitely not a plane. A satellite is a possibility though I have never seen one before.

I just thought I'd report it here in case anyone else saw it or had any information as to whether or not this sounds like a satellite.
