Duration:10 minutes
"Star" moves after being stationary.

I was walking across a field after dark after deer hunting. I stop frequently due to being overweight and look around. During one of these stops I looked up overhead and to the northeast and watched an an aircraft flying from east to west. Above it was a very bright light I thought was a star. The light was stationary while watching the aircraft. After a few minutes I started walking again.I got winded and stopped again a few minutes later and looked up to watch the aircraft and saw the "star" now moving at a good speed towards the southeast. I watched it til it faded from sight. I have a set of Swarovski 10x binoculars(very good optics)and looked at the light thru them when I first saw it moving. It was just a very bright white light with no shape.
