Small meteor like object streaked across sky but did not lose brilliance or speed.

At 6:00 pm on tuesday the 16th me and a friend saw a blue-green object streak across the sky at a MUCH higher rate than any plane or other manmade object (which were also in the sky at the time, I used them for reference). The streak appeared to be a meteorite at first, because of the upcoming lenoid meteor showers, but it did not lose brilliance or change color as it streaked across the sky. It kept the same speed and shape and color and size as it "flew" from West to East, following the path of I-64/40. The object dissapeared over the horizon after about a minute. It continued through the trees, which was obvious because we could see it.
