guitar pick/teardrop shaped object in sky traveling NW to SE, soundless with 1 leading headlight

I was traveling to work on I74 at aprox. 06:40 a.m. I've always been a skywatcher,so while the traffic was light I stole a glance at the sky. It was cloudy and I saw no stars until I looked over my left shoulder and saw what I thought was one bright star. I then noticed it was moving slowly SE and thought it might be an airplane but noticed no other lights. I heard no sound. I pulled onto the shoulder and stopped to get a better look. As it passed over, I noted it was a "guitar pick" shaped object of a dull metalic color with one "headlight".It flew at about the height of a low flying airplane. What really stood out to me was its shape and the fact that it had no wings and no flashing lights like you might see on an airplane. I don't know what this object was and am interesed in finding out if anyone else saw this.
