Saw a plane in the sky that looked backward and flew across the sky silently.

I have seen, with the best that I can describe, an object in the sky that very closely resembled a commercial aircraft. BUT!! As far as I know, the aircraft warning lights on all aircraft thoughout the world are consistant. One bright white light in the front, lights on the wing tips, a blinking red light on the tail, and every jet that I've seen takes several minutes to cross the sky. I witnessed an object cross the sky in less than a minute without a single sound. In addition, the warning lights were in the wrong place, the red light was in the front, plus the craft appeared to travel at angle inconsistant with normal aircraft. It looked as if it were flying backwards at an angle. The only aircraft that I know that can cross the sky in less than a minute is a satilite, and it's only a pinpoint of light.
