Ball of white light travelling at incredible speed 300 ft off the ground and perfectly horizontally.

As I was driving home from work on Thursday December 17 at 22:50, I observed a ball of white light travelling at incredible speed. The ball of light was travelling north, appeared to be about 300 feet off the ground, and was travelling perfectly horizontally. The light appeared to be about 800 to 1000 feet east of the road I was travelling on (Brock Rd., south of Hwy 407, Pickering, Ontario, Canada). Lake Ontario is roughly 20kms south of where I saw the light. The sighting only lasted about 2 seconds due to the incredible speed of the ball of light.

It did not strike me as a meteor or shooting star type of light in the sky as I have seen many times over my life. This was something different.
