Single light moves through sky at alarming rate In Plaifield, Illinois

I was laying on a slab of cement in the middle of plainfield looking at the stars when I saw a light move across the sky. The object looked somewhat like a plane, in which it had a center light with a glow around it, but it was moving extremely too fast to be any aircraft to my knowledge. I had seen a lot of meteors that night also but I have seen quite a few meteors and even "fireballs" in the past and this looked nothing like those. It was only for a a few seconds that I saw it cause it moved throught the sky in a straight line so quickly.
