Large translucent orange/gold v-shaped object flying from wast to west in straight line

I was outside in my backyard watching for meteors when I noticed a large anomaly moving from east to west at a very high altitude. The object had a translucent faint orange/gold semi v-shaped leading edge and was shaped similar to a flying wing type aircraft only much, much larger with a transparent look to it. The object moved in a straight line from roughly east to west, making no sound, and traversed the entire visible sky in less than 30 seconds. I am very familiar with all types of conventional aircraft having been a plane enthusiast for over 30 years, and this object fit no description of anything I have ever seen. It had no marker lights and was much too large and fast to be any ordinary aircraft. Its absolutely straight course, translucent appearance and color, and its shape and immense size would discount the possibility of it being a searchlight, reflection, or other easily explainable source.
