What WAS that?

Don't have much detail to give but last night both my husband and I saw something we've NEVER seen before. It was an aircraft traveling at a speed that was unbelievably fast. Ten times faster than any jet we've seen. Also it had red and green lights that were very bright and visible. It passed over us so fast. Too dark so couldn't make out a shape. How could we go about finding out what that was? Is there such an aircraft? Not sure what we saw. Neither one of us is really a believer in UFO's.

If it's a legitimate aircraft, how can we go about identifying it? Oh, just remembered another detail. At the time of this sighting we had the hot tub on which is kind of noisy. When we sighted this object we heard no noise from it, which usually you could hear a jet over the hot tub motor. We turned off the hot tub and still heard nothing. Very strange and has made us wonder. Please advise of a source to ID this and weather there's such a "legitimate" aircraft that fits this description.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and she seemed quite credible to us. Because of the red and green lights the witnesses observed on the object, we strongly suspect that it might have been some type of terrestrial aircraft, although that is a guess. PD))
