Reddish-Brown Cigar-Shaped Object Flies Over Frederick, MD

I saw a cigar-shaped object flying fast across the sky, about 1000 - 2000 ft in the air, moving into Frederick from the SSW heading northward. I noticed how fast it was flying and then realized that it didn't appear to have any wings like a plane. I thought of it being a plane or helicopter or drone aircraft, but it moved fast like a fighter jet, but there was absolutely no sound. The craft was a reddish-brown color with a gray front end, ironically like a lighted cigar. I watched it until I couldn't see it any more behind a building, but about 10-15 seconds later, I watched a commercial plane taking off into the sky from the Frederick airport, which was apparently larger and the wings were noticeable. I watch numerous aircraft flying through this area on a daily basis and nothing flies like this object did. My location during this sighting was just south of the Westview Regal 16 theater.
