Extremely fast object across New Orleans sky

A friend and I were in the front yard when we saw a supremely fast object travel from one side of the New Orleans sky to the other--until it went out of sight. It was traveling at an incredible speed, easily thousands of miles per hour with absolutely no sound.

We thought it was a comet or shooting star but it was too low for that. Also no trail or smoke and it appeared to maintain a constant speed. Imagine an object going from one end of the sky to the other in 3-4 seconds!

Also as it moved past I noticed a slights green and blue hue.

I've seen plenty of shooting stars and this was not a shooting star or a satelite (it was low).

We were absolutely in awe at the speed of this object!
