Large Bright White Light Moving slowly high above my house, no noise, then Stopped

Myself and my Wife witnessed a large bright white light moving slowly from the North West, to the South East. It passed high over my house, and at first I thought it was a helicopter, but there was no noise coming from it, and it had no green or red flashing lights, just a large bright white light. I though it was one of those bags with lite candles inside, to make it lift, but it was too white and too bright and it stopped, after it passed my house, I watched it for at least 15 minutes more and it did not move, and just looked like a very bright star?

I have been an engineer for many years, so I tried to rationalize what it could have been, but I cannot come up with any explanation of what it could be, I got up this morning and ran out to see if it was still hanging in the same location. It was gone.
