A bright , round light, moving slowly before fading and disappearing

I was watching the meteorite display from 22.30 till midnight with a friend. The sky was clear and it was quiet. A very bright, round light suddenly appeared in the sky to the north of the house. It was like a searchlight and moved slowly to the right (east) before fading and disappearing. There was no sound and I estimate the elevation to be about 45 degrees. The light was as bright as a car headlight and the size approximately the size of a car headlight at a distance of 100m. The BBC TV "Look North" programme's weatherman, Paul Hudson, mentioned that there had been two reports of UFO's in Yorkshire on that particular night but gave no details.
