white ball of light overhead....

I've never seen a UFO and still not sure if I have...but thought I'd report only thing that might qualify. I was taking a walk at night... as I frequently do... it was a clear night..warm...and I noticed a ball of light...best way i can describe it.. it was like a bright volleyball of white light....it seemed only about 200 feet or so above...not high up like a plane....and it didn't seem large...like anyone could be inside it. it was right above me for about 3-4 seconds...and then it just took off...going west over the gulf of Mexico. But what shocked me was the speed !!! it was like those movies with warp speed.... it was completely gone within a split second !! I've never seen anything like it..... and I haven't seen anything since that one time. The ball of light was also soundless...completely quiet.
