Small, spherical white light object traveling rapidly [horizontally] with no noise.

On the evening of December 7, 2000 at approximately 5:50 PM, I had just stepped out the front door of the house to take my mother grocery shopping when I saw a small, spherical white light approaching from the southeast[horizontally]at a very rapid speed. I called to my mother to come quickly and as she stepped out the front door, this object flew right over our heads, about 10 feet above the roof of the house [It's a 2-story house]. There was absolutely no noise what-so-ever. My mother was very startled and said "What was that?". I said "What do you think it was? Did you hear any noise like a helicopter or a plane?". She said "No". I said "It was a UFO". She didn't want to believe that but it was a clear night with no storm in the forecast and I have never heard of any reports of ball lightning in this area.
