Ball of light at high speed

I was taking some friends out for a harbor cruise and while I had to boat in reverse backing out of the dock I saw what I thought was a shooting star as I said "Oh look a shooting star" then I thought about it and was like shooting stars have tails and this didn't.

It was a ball of white light moving at a high speed from moving from South-East to North-West. I only saw it for a couple seconds then it was gone.

((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor, we suspect. We spoke with the witness via telephone, and none of the other people present witnessed the event, which occurred on October 30, not 31. PD))
