Bright ball of light speeding through the sky and disappearing 3 times

The night was very clear and the sky was full of stars. It was apx. 11 pm when I went outside. I was looking up at the stars when I noticed a bright ball of white light come flying by me about 30 ft away. There was no noise, and the light was traveling extremely fast, so fast if you blinked you'd miss it. It was very low in the air, about treetop level. The light came from the west and sped across the lake ( I was standing about 100 ft from the lake) and then disappeared. About a minute later, another bright light appeared about 25 ft in front of me, sped off inbetween some trees and it too disappeared. Both times I saw this ball of light it was flying west to east. About an hour later, I went back outside to see if I could see the light again, and this time I saw the same ball of light, a little bit higher in the sky traveling southwest and then disappearing. It looked to be about the size of a basketball. It left no trail behind it, but because it was going so fast, it almost looked like the trail ( if you could call it that) preceded it. There were planes high up in the air that night, normal looking plane traffic. There are no city lights where I was at, and except for the stars in the sky, it was very dark. I don't know if this was a UFO or what it was, but I definetely DID see this ball of light speeding by three times and disappearing.
