Duration:11pm - 5am
Very large white light that was not a star

This object appeared to be the brightest star in the sky around 11pm and moved slowly & I mean very slowly, as stars uniformly move over the horizon. It traveled in a straight line until it stopped just over our home around 4am. which by then looked like a stadium light and appeared to be too low to be a star. We used our 10x50 binoculars to get a better look & discovered on each side of the main bright light were 3 or 4 tiny lights appearing to be some white & some green. The peculiar thing is, as daybreak began, it very slowy ascended upward rather than continue across the horizon in uniform with the rest of the stars & by sun up, using the binoculars, you could still see it as a very small light much duller white light.
