Fast moving bright light observed over Branford Ct 12/7/2005

I was looking up in the sky around 6:30 pm on December 7th 2005 in Branford Ct. I saw a bright light cross the sky. It was not consistant with any shooting star I have ever seen. It seemed much closer, near where planes would normally fly. The shape was round and the size was much wider than traditional aircraft. What struck me as odd was the speed it traveled and the fact that it made no sound. It lasted for what I could see was about 2-3 seconds than went out of sight. I have seen a meteor burn in earths atmosphere which gives off a green glow. This was pure white light.

It was near the Branford airport, however the planes that I saw in the distance before and especially after the event seemed to be moving in slow motion in comparison.
