Large, bright star-like object with no tail traverses the sky east to west; seen through city lights

My wife and I were traveling west bound on I-94 within the city limits, just east of the Zoo interchange which is around 8-10 miles west of Lake Michigan. We noticed a broght light moving very fast from east to the west, north-west; from overhead to around 10 to 15 degrees above the horizon. It was approximately the size of 3 or 4 stars put together and was whiteish in color. The city street lights were so bright that I said that it must be low to be seen below the clouds. Once we got out of the city, we saw the stars come out because the sky was clear so this object had to be very bright to be seen by us through the street lights. It covered the distance in the sky in 2 seconds and did not leave a trail. I am familiar with seeing satelites, conventional aircraft, and meteors and this definately was not one of those. Two other couples at our family get-together saw the object as well. I am trying to convince them to write a report. They were also west bound on I-94 when they saw it.
