Saw boomerang shaped, low-flying craft gliding at high rate of speed; shooting star immediately followed

At approximately 10.30 pm CST I was in my backyard trying to coax my cat down from the patio roof. I live in the flight path of an international airport so it’s quite normal to see low-flying airplanes moving overhead, and at first, that’s what I thought I saw.

However, the object in the sky that I observed was traveling at a high rate of speed, and, with the light pollution making its outline visible, I could tell it was boomerang shaped. Several dim lights emanated from its undercarriage. This “craft” was flying quite low, much lower than typical airplanes, and it was silent as it glided overhead. I ran onto my walkway and could still see the craft, which kept its rate of speed. As it disappeared towards the east, (meaning, I couldn’t see its outline as it faded into the darkness), I was startled by a shooting star that seemed to have streaked into the craft’s path.

I do not believe this was an airplane or a bird. I have never seen anything like this and I tend not to jump to conclusions, but this was just very, very odd.
