STRANGE OBJECT STREAKS ACROSS THE SKY LIKE A SHOOTING STAR-NO SOUND

Shortly after 12:30 AM, as I was smoking a cigarette in my rural yard, looking across my family's lake at a direction of N NE, I noticed what appeared to be an airplane in the night sky to my left (at about my 10 o' clock). While watching this, an object I could not identify came streaking out of the northeastern sky and flew from that side of the horizon to the southwestern sky behind me in no more than one second of time. It was amazingly fast, so fast that I actually thought I was watching a shooting star initially. To make this sighting more strange, this object made NO AUDIBLE SOUND, had what appeared to be dim lights like the last breath of a cheap flashlight before it completely dies, and was as low-flying as a five-story building. Even more amazing, is that after the event, as I stood and pondered what kind of unidentified object I must have seen, I started thinking about the amazing radar or controls this object must have. Honestly, it appeared! to be man-made, though that's really not for me to say. What I mean is, this object could not continue at its speed and trajectory for long until it were to collide with SOMETHING, being that it was so low-flying.

Truly amazing. Gave me instant tears to see something so awe-inspiring.
