Shape: Unknown
Duration: 10 minutes
West to east direction, illiuminated by son.

Looking out West from my patio, I was watching a plane fly by, as this is a very popular route for planes coming from the west. I managed to catch a glimpse of what looked like a satellite, moving across the sky from west to east, being illuminated by the son behind it, flickering on and off. Very bright. Moving just as fast as a satellite mind you. About a minute went by and the craft seemed to stop high above me and just slowly dim out over the course of 10 minutes in one spot. Slightly moving south at this point. I've lost sight of the object as it seems to have just disappeared. Didn't see it move for quite a while.
