bright light approaching form the north

I was lying in bed trying to go to sleep( I am an insomniac) and staring out the window next to the bed, when I saw a light in the sky approaching from the north, and headed south. I saw that it did'nt appear to be an airplane, as it had no blinking lights nor was it making any sound.(I sleep with the window partially open, so I'd have been able to hear engine sounds)It was no more than 400' above the house. As I watched it, and I wondered at what I was seeing, It stopped, hovered for a moment, then suddenly shot off at a 45 degree angle to the east at a high rate of speed.
