It corresponds to possible sighting of the International Space Station.
From Buffalo NY on Fri night 9/10 - you could see the ISS for 2 minutes nearly overhead travelling in the directions below - from WNW to SE. The ISS
looks like a bright star travelling about 2-3 times as fast as a plane, with no blinking lights and a "fade out" at the end when it leaves visibility.
I've seen it numerous times with one great viewing with my wife with the space shuttle travelling about 20-30 seconds time behind it before it

WIth any viewing of anything - if it isn't flying around like crazy in all directions with stops and starts - if it is a smooth light traversing the
sky it is probably a satellite or ISS (which is pretty large compared to satellites). Always check web sites for sighting opportunities first.
Here's where I got yours:
