Bright, spherical, white light seen over apartment complex.

While star gazing in my apartment's courtyard, I observed a bright, white, spherical light. It moved rapidly across the sky from behind some of the apartment buildings into a clearing and then behind more apartment buildings. The object was moving from east to west and I lost sight of it due north. The object's distance was hard to gauge, but it seemed to be closer than a commercial airliner at cruising altitude. It was about the size of a nickel held at arm's length, and appeared at about 30 degrees from the horizon. The whole event only lasted about 2 seconds and no noise was emitted from the object.
