Duration: 10 seconds
Small ball of white light moving very fast across the sky with no sound or contrail

On April 13th 2021 at around 10:30 PM I was out on my back porch sky gazing when I saw a small round light moving from the southwest toward the northeast much faster than an airliner say at 33,000 feet. Based on an airliner speed of 400-450 knots at altitude moving across the night sky, I would estimate this object was moving close to 1200 knots. Iíve seen what a satellite looks like moving across the sky, but this object was nearly 4 times the size of what a very small satellite looks like in the sky. They are very difficult to see. This was very easy to see. I donít believe it was a satellite. There was no sound associated with it, no anti-collision lights, nor a contrail and it flew in a straight line northeasterly and dimmed out of view.
