Small, faintly triangular light seen over east Norman, OK

At approx. 0100 UTC, I sighted a small triangular light streaking overhead at estimated altitude of 10000 feet above MSL, accurate to within 5000 feet. I had heard a helicopter in the distance and dogs in the yard barking about 30 seconds prior and stepped outside to observe. The helicopter was fairly low, about 500 feet or less AGL. It appeared to be on the same heading as the object and appeared to be in pursuit. I spend a good portion of my time observing and studying aircraft, and what I saw was quite obviously no aircraft. It was completely silent and appeared to be traveling at 800+ knots. It, along with the helicopter appeared to be on a heading of about 180 magnetic. I believe that this was a UFO because of the incredible speed and the lack of navigation lights or sound that would accompany an aircraft.
