Ball of light hovering near Midway airport...

I was in my car in a parking lot waiting for my dad to come out from work,near midway airport. I was looking out the window when one white light moving fast from south to north caught my attention. From where I was it looked like the size of a street light,just a round white ball of light. Now I mentioned I was by Midway airport so there are planes landing often but they usually are moving slower and flying lower as they are about to land. The object i saw had no lights on its side like planes and made no sound,but was moving faster then a plane would at high altidude. I saw it for a total of about five seconds, it moved in straight line. I lost track of it behind trees of in the distance.
