Bright circular greenish/turqoise light moving extremely fast horizontally toward the west for 3 seconds

Driving on a back road tonight with my son a bright greenish/turquoise circular light passed over us .It was heading west.We saw it for approximately 3 seconds,moving incredibly fast.Sizewise,it was about 1/4 of the size of the moon,my son said 1/5th.We thought at first it was a falling star,but I've never seen one so large and close to earth,and it seemed to travel horizontally.It seemed to shut off,not fade out or go out of sight.We were also within 1/4 mile of high tension lines,but had already gone past them.We have alot of plane/jet traffic go over here,but never anything that fast.
