Was it a secret satellite or and extremely fast, high flying plane or object?

At approximately 5:58 am on November 5, 2015, I went outside to take out the recycle container. As I was walking back to the house I looked up and noticed an extremely clear sky with several bright stars as well as a crescent moon and Venus.

I then noticed one of the bright stars was moving in a straight line from the southwest toward the northeast. I assumed it must be the space station or a very bright satellite, as it continued in the sky directly overhead and for several minutes remained visible never deviating from it’s course until it finally disappeared to the northeast.

I have a program that identifies satellites and other objects in the night sky so I went in and got on the computer to identify what it was I had just seen. To my surprise nothing showed up in the program to be flying in that direction and area of the sky at that time. What was it??
