Multiple times over 6 months, on clear nights, I have witnessed a similar anomaly. A bright white light traveling in a straight path high above ground, plane like initially but silent (live in a very quiet area 20 mi south of RDU so planes are common) makes an ascent seemingly out of orbit rather than continuing on its path. The light is at a distance where if a plane, it would be quite visible for several minutes in a straight line path before going out of sight. Light is steady; no blinking, but fades with ascent. Possible a bright object (asteroid?) moving closely past Earth before quickly passing out of sight.
