Bright light in the sky

Sky was dark, I went outside to have a smoke. I walked around to the back of my apt. bldg. and looked up as I usually do.

almost straight overhead, (I would say at about 85 deg.), I saw a light brighter and larger than any star I have ever seen. It was about 1/8th to 3/16ths of an inch held at arms length. Color was bright white.

My first thought was "Hello, what are you doing up there?" As soon as that thought was complete, this light began to recede and shrink. Within a second, or second and a half it had "faded" to match the faintest stars you could see. Then it was gone.

There were aircraft in the sky, but they showed no interaction with this "light" I saw other stars, planets in the area but noticed no indication of a shape behind this light.
