Super Bright Silent Light Cruising Slowly Across South Jersey - 100% Not a Plane or Meteor

Walked outside this evening about 6:15pm with my dogs and saw a large super bright silent light coming from the west (Philadelphia PA) heading towards the east (Medford, NJ} and going straight overhead at 12 0'clock.

Ran inside and even made my wife come watch it go over. Living on the flight path of the Philly airport I see and hear jets of all types every minute or so as they approach and know all of the flight paths of even the jets going over at 30 thousand feet.

This light was solid with no strobes or color changes and moving slowly with an occasional hesitation and drift then back on a straight course again. It was above the normal landing approach height and crossing over their path, it was also below the height of the jets already at high altitude passing over, unless it was the size of a football stadium.

I've never in my life seen anything like this. Too big and bright for any kind of satellite which I Googled to compare. I tried to video it on my cell but couldn't capture it as I was fumbling as I was trying to get to my video app and watch the light at the same time. :(
