Lasted about 10 seconds but when it went dull it was still there did not move


I'd have to agree with waveguide then... it's probably a satellite flare. However, there would have had to be at least some perceptible motion if seen for 10 seconds, and I'm sure waveguide will agree with me on this.

I've linked a video of a nearly head on meteor here. If it was a directly head on meteor, it would not have appeared to move at all, so you'll have to use your imagination a bit - but basically it looks just like you described, a stationary rapidly brightening star that disappears leaving no trace (usually).

Edit to add - meteors and satellites can be nearly indistinguishable under some circumstances... without more data it is often impossible to tell the difference.
