Bright light moving quickly east to west viewed from the boston common

In the boston common walking away from the public gardens towards the park st station, my girlfriend and I noticed a fast moving light heading east to west in the sky. The approach for commercial planes was directly over the common heading due east, the opposite direction of which way the light was moving. It was clearly not a helicopter for it made no sound resembling a helicopter, although it was possible this object was too high to hear the sound if it made one. It was visible for about ten seconds at about a 40 degree angle in the southern sky of where we at that particular point (the exact location of the sighting was about 100 yards north of the gate which across the st. is the public garden, the path next to the softball field). if anyone else saw this object and can explain it or give more detail on it, feel free to email me.
