Sighting Details

I was taking out our puppy at about 4:10am on 7/10/14, in Salem Ohio. I was watching a couple jets (prob commercial) fly off in different directions when what I thought was a star started moving. It emitted a constant unwavering goldish bluish white light. It went from a hover in the N-NW (around the direction I would travel to Cleveland) and flew toward the S-SE over Columbia county. I can't approximate it's speed well as I didn't know if it was a smaller object closer to the ground or a larger object really high up. But if I had to guess I would say it was about 500ft-1000ft from the ground and was probably going just as fast as a commercial jet at cruising speed. I heard no noise and it was a really quiet morning, but in all fairness I didn't hear engine noise from the jets either. The object stopped moving and hovered for a few seconds the started traveling again instantly moving at the same or about the same speed in the same direction. I started to lose it behind the trees but could see the constant glow of its light between branches/leaves until it was gone. There were no other flashing lights on the object at all. Could have been a drone I'm sure, or a plane reflecting the rising sun as I've seen happen before but not starting and stopping in mid air as it did. The whole incident lasted a couple of minutes. All in all pretty cool to see. If iPhone could put a better camera on here I might have been able to get usable video but cells in the dark are always sketchy. Sorry everyone no useful photo/ video at all.
