white light changing directions in the sky.

We were looking at the sky and saw some regular stars and venus or something like always. but then about 10 seconds later it was pointed out that one of the obects was moving southeast coming from the southwest. we watched it for a second and it had no flashing lights and was all white. it then started to change direction a little and started heading a little more towards the east, changing direction so we knew it wasnt a sattelite. we watched it until it disappeared over the other houses and we could not see it any more.
