Looked like shooting star, Except they had no tail, went from south horizion to north horizion at a very high rate of speed

I am an over the road truck driver, at aprox 02:00 hour's while I was driving north on hwy 35 between Osceola, Iowa and Des Moines, Iowa. I saw A point of light ( Bigger than the star's and much brighter.)going at a high rate of speed, from the South to the North. ( Out the driver's side window, which was down.) It looked like a shooting star Except there was no tail to it at all, then about 15-20 min's later, I saw the exact same thing, also going from South to North. The reason that I am letting you know about this is because this same thing happend about 4 month's ago, Except it was colder outside and I had the window's up, and I thought that maybe it was a reflection off the glass from some other source (passing car, ect.) But this time with the window down, that was not the case. I should mention that the first event also had two object's about 15-20 min's apart. I do'nt know if this is anything at all, but I thought I would tell you about it. Thank you for your time.
