Fast moving two humped camel back light source

At approximately 8:45 pm on 3-6-2010 I was on my second story deck in Fairfax, VA observing Orion. It was a perfectly clear evening sky. Low on the horizon I saw two planes due west crossing one anothers flight paths preparing to land.

From slightly below and to the right of Sirius, I saw an unbroken arc of dull white light shaped like a two humped camel's back move on a 45 degree angle toward earth's surface. This entire event took place in approximately two seconds.

It reminded me of search lights at a store grand opening that bounce off clouds, except there were no clouds. This did not appear to be the outline of any type of craft, rather the leading edge of an incredibly large fast moving light source.
