Dark unlit object streaking across Tucson sky at unbelievable speed.

A few minutes ago, approximately 2115 MST, while sitting in my hot tub behind my home on the East Side of Tucson, AZ I saw a large dark object traverse the sky from South to North at unbelievable speed. There were no lights, only a silhouette against the moonlit sky. The object appeared in the Southern sky and was out of sight to the North in less than five seconds. I am a retired Air Force Officer and I live to the East of Tucson International Airport and Davis Monthan Air Force Base and see countless aircraft crossing my property, but I have never seen a totally dark object, or have I seen any object pass that quickly. It was, to say the least, breathtaking.
