Large bright light appeared in sky overhead and then quickly dropped down out of my sight.

I was sitting outside in my hammock reading a book when I suddenly saw a large, bright light in the sky. It seemed to have a glow around it, also. It didn't appear to have come from anywhere, it was just suddenly there. Then it appeared as if it started to fall. My first thought was a falling star but it was way too big and had no tail or anything like that. It moved very quickly. By the time I got out of the hammock and ran to the middle of the patio for a better look, it was gone. There were no sounds of aircraft. I do live between 2 small airfields but I have not seen anything move that fast, that was that big without any sound at all. This is the first ufo report I have ever filed. I can't think what this could have been which is what prompted me to do this. I am hoping someone else reports it also just so I know I didn't imagine it. My dog started barking at the same time also. So, did both the neighbors dogs, now I think of it. As for my background, I am just your average Joan, reading a book in the backyard, enjoying a nice evening before it gets unbearably hot. Since it was dark, I did have the patio light on. I also had my glasses on. I even questioned if perhaps there had been some wierd reflection but I could not recreate anything that even came close to it. I am not prone to fabrication. I am very science oriented as my entire adult life has been spent in medicine. All science and facts. Thanks.
