It's 5.50 am now in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I just saw a moving star around 5 am. It was a starry sky and that star was moving in a straight line. It was very fast, faster than regular planes (though I didn't hear any sound) and disappeared in the Eastern sky. It was a little brighter and a little closer than the other stars. Can anyone tell, what was it?

    $\begingroup$ Technically, it IS a UFO until you can lose the U. $\endgroup$ – deg Sep 17 '17 at 5:56
  • $\begingroup$ If you don't know what it is, then by definition it's a UFO - Unidentified Flying Object. "Unidentified" means you don't know what it is, that's all. It does not mean it's a starship full of aliens, necessarily. $\endgroup$ – Florin Andrei Sep 18 '17 at 19:00

According to this (https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/sightings/view.cfm?country=Bangladesh&region=None&city=Dhaka#.WcATdWdSz0o) the ISS was around at that time of morning. The sunrise was 5:45, so it could have been illuminated by the sun before it rose.
