White light shots across sky.

Live in the west end of Toronto near High Park south of Bloor Street. Sitting in my backyard having a cigarette. Fairly clear night but it did cloud over after the sighting. Glanced to the north and saw a bright light shoot straight down. Looked odd. It coud have just been a really huge shooting star. But I don't think it was. It looked liked a big bright white headlight of a car but it was in the sky and it did not have a tail like a meterorite. Plus it was quite big and it looked to be at a low attitude. Much bigger than a shooting star. About the size of a small pea in the night sky. Moved very fast - disappeared from view behind nieghbours rooftop. From my vantage point the light appered to be falling straight down but it might have been shooting across the sky in a northerly direction.

Don't know what it was. Just saw it for a second. I thought that I would post this just in case anyone else saw something more that night as well.
