Large ball of bright light flying low across the sky

I was standing on my deck staring at the stars when I saw a very large ball of LED colored light came soaring through the sky just above the tree tops. It was much lower flying than any plane or helicopter. It was silent, and from my perspective appeared to be very large. There was no distinct craft, just a large ball of light moving in a straight line, and at a controlled but fast speed. Behind it there was what appeared to be a jet stream, but it was pitch black out so it was more like a trail of very faint light that was the exhaust. The light was only in my view for a few moments but the exhaust light remained for a few more seconds before dissipating. This was clearly not a shooting star or meteor. The “craft” continued on to an area out of my view. I am absolutely certain that this was nothing other than a craft of some sort whether it be military or ET. There were planes in the area at the time, but they looked like ants compared to this thing.
