A very fast-moving sound, changing direction quickly...Occured twice

I heard an erratic hissing sound, like a firework or sparkler type noise, "flying" around at a very low altitude, and changing directions rapidly.

The occurance happened twice within 15 minutes of each other. I had never heard a noise like it before.

I looked up and saw nothing the first time, and the secind time I looked even harder, trying to trace the noise with my eyes, but I couldn't see anyhting. I spent time after the incident looking for anything in the area that might make a noise like that and found nothing.

To give a better example of what it sounded like, it was almost like cutting a hose to an giant air compressor no more than 100 feet above one's head, and hearing it lash around in several hundred meters in each direction.
