Very fast object over boulder

I was driving home from work and got on east bound Highway 52 from the Diagonal. It was a clear summer day, not a cloud in the sky. I saw a bright white or reflective object very high in the sky, I would say 30,000 feet or about the same height as commercial airliners. What made this object unusual was its size and speed. Although I couldnt make any detail out of it I could tell it wasnt very big. Its speed was what i found amazing. For me the best way to describe it is to be standing behind a missile as it was lauched off a airplane and all you could see was the orange glow of its thrust as it dissapear, it moved that fast. except this object didnt have a orange glow, no smoke or no contrails. I watched this object dissapear over the horizon, the hole event only lasted a little over a minute.
