Large bright light moving slow in straight line, no sound, 5,000 to 10,000 ft high then disappeared.

((NUFORC Note: Witness corrects report on August 13, stating that he believes that the object was the International Space Station. PD))

At approximately 10:30 pm last Sunday night, my wife and I were on our patio. I looked directly above my head and saw a brilliant white light traveling east. The object was traveling slow, in a straight line and did not deviate its course. We couldn't see the shape of the object because the light was so bright. It was about 4 times as large as the planet Jupiter that night, which was very bright and clear.

There was no sound and the weather was perfect, no wind. I saw a commercial jet above the object which travel at approximately 30,000 feet, so my best guess at the height of this object was 5,000 to 10,000 feet high (really difficult to determine).

I did check the internet and the space station was near Venezuela at the time.

As it was traveling away, it suddenly disappeared or the light was shut off.

I don't believe it was a satellite because it was just too low.

Again, large bright white light (4 times size of Jupiter), traveling slow across sky, no sound, 5,000 to 10,000 ft high, immediately disappeared after 2 minutes.
