Small white dot high in sky similar to 7/2009 case over San Jose.

Similar to 7/1/2010 case over San Jose.

Small white dot appears over San Jose. Observed from South San Jose. The dot was quite small but clearly visible with the eye . Binocs didn’t help much. I think the dot disappeared after about 5 minutes. Too high to be a plane. Space station moves and this was stationary. The angle was looking almost at 60 degrees in the sky from my position to the north.

Could it have been a star visible during the day time? If so, why would it disappear after five minutes.
