Duration:5 seconds
Light in sky moving rapidly, then disappearing

I was traveling south on Milwaukee Avenue, heading towards Wheeling, IL and saw a bright shape in the Southern (South, slightly south/west) sky, looking up, about at a 45 degree angle. It was a rapidly moving light heading to the west, quicker than I had observed objects moving in the sky before (IE, aircraft). Just as quickly as I saw it, it seemed to just disappear. The light coming off the objuect felt the same to me as light coming off metal.
