Sighting Details

I was in my backyard a few minutes after midnight observing the night sky with my binoculars. after ten minutes of viewing the sky, i observed an object moving at a constant quick speed. it looked just like a distant star and it seemed to be beyond earth’s atmosphere, in the range of a satellite, but it moved at least 20 times faster than a satellite. i viewed it from the west and it headed towards mt. hood direction. i viewed the object for approximately 30 seconds until it faded from my binocular view. it never changed colors or size.
