BRIGHT Bluish-white light moving silently through sky at very high speed

We saw a light moving through the sky at a very high speed, and there was no sound from it, and no flashing lights, either. I don't know of any plane that has a bright light shining down at all times, but maybe I'm wrong. It was a very bright light, and almost looked like a shooting star, but was much brighter and it kept going through the sky until we couldn't see it anymore. It was very clear last night, and you could see no trail whatsoever, and it was silent. It almost had the characteristics of a comet, but the light was more of a bluish white. I really can't know for sure what it was, but I have watched the stars avidly since I was a child and I have never seen anything like this.
