Moving star

I believe it was around 10:30 pm, the time may be off but it was dark and moonless. What I later learned to be the star Altair (Aquila constellation) caught my eye. I thought it was a satellite - it was moving from the right toward Tarazed and Alshain, and I half consciously took note of how the triangle of the three changed shape as it got closer. I was surprised when it stopped between them… I checked it out again tonight and it is stationary.
