Satellite Looking Star Stopped In Orion's Belt

What appeared to be a satellite travelled from the Southwest of Kansas City toward the Northeast. I've lived at my location for 20 years, and have never seen a satellite because of the light pollution. I watched it enter toward Orion's Belt for about a minute, then it stopped. I observed it in a stopped posItion for around 3 minutes. It was slightly brighter than any star, but was too high to be a conventional aircraft. It looked like a star. I went indoors to get a video camera, and when I went back outside 1 minute later, it was gone. Nothing else in the sky in the direction it was travelling was moving.
