I saw an object with four white lights on it speed across the sky and then disappear.

I am a graduate student at Indiana University. I was out taking my dogs for a walk, and my attention was drawn to the sky because there was something moving very rapidly there. At first, I thought it was a meteor, but then I noticed that there were 4, evenly-spaced, seemingly artificial lights on what appeared to be the bottom of an aircraft. It was too high to make out any shape other than that of the lights, which were in a straight, narrow line (like a cigar). I didn't hear any noise. I do know that this craft was going way too fast to be any sort of conventional aircraft. I was following it very closely with my eyes as it streaked across the sky when it suddenly disappeared. It was a very clear night, so there is little chance it went behind a cloud, etc. I had just about convinced myself that I had imagined the whole thing, when I noticed about five planes circling the area. That's when I decided to submit a report, to see if anyone else in this area might have seen the same thing.
