bright ball of light heading north very fast

I was at my computer, which has a window behind it, facing north. I had an overhead light on, and the only lights I can normally see are a few house lights on either side, and about the middle of my monitor.

I was typing when all the sudden, a bright streak of bluish/whitish light caught my eye, ABOVE my monitor, and heading north. From my position, it was about the size of a pencil eraser; maybe slightly larger.

I had time to stand up and look at it, then I went out on the back porch, which is on the north side of the house, to see if I could see it anymore, but it was gone.

My 1st thought was that it was a meteor, but it would have had to be huge to be bright enough for me to see, since my overhead light was on.
