bright orb seen flying over arvada, colorado

This object came out of the north/northwest. It was a circular ball of light that I thought at first might be an aircraft landing light. It was as bright as an aircraft light,very bright. However there was no flashing lights of any kind. I did have binoculars, but could only make out a bright orb. It moved directly over me as it was performing a wide arcing turn. It eventually was headed toward the east/northeast and I watched it until it disappeared. The total event lasted around 10 minutes time. It made no sound whatsoever and never varied its speed or altitude. It never lost brightness only dimmed as it receded into the distance. Its altitude didn't seem as high up as a commercial jet, but I couldn't be sure because of nothing to compare it to.
