We saw a star like object moving slowly from a North West direction travelling slowly in a South East direction till it disappeared out of sight.

  1. That is most likely a satellite. Different satellites move at different speeds across the sky and reflect the rays of the sun, this makes it look like a ‘moving star’. There is software on the internet (like Orbitron) that will help you identify or track satellites, but keep in mind there is also tons of debris orbiting the earth (inactive satellites, used Russian rockets, etc), so even if you can’t identify it with software, it’s most likely just space junk.
