Intense Yellow diamond shaped light over Manchester MO

I was driving Westbound on Manchester road (4-lane busy road, no shoulders) on my way home. It was nearly dark out. I had my car windows down as it was comfortable in the lower 80's or so. I happened to see a very intense light, shaped like a diamond, flying horizontally to the south of me. It was headed East. I was driving and could not pull over and only caught a few glimpses of it. It was flying at what seemed to be a low altitude and was totally silent. It was much brighter than any airplane or helicopter I have ever seen. The light was yellowish about the color of the sun. Not quite that bright but in any event probably the second brightest thing I have ever seen in the sky (2nd to the sun).
