Peanut sape heading north, low and fast, No noise

My friend and I were sitting outside smoking a cigerette, as we do everynight. We were just looking up in the sky for MARS and I looked straight up above me, when I asked my friend, "WHAT IS THAT?" He looked up and say said, "WERE" and he pointed to a star and said that is MARS. I said, "NO RIGHT ABOVE YOU. " He looked straight up and said "What the H--- is that?" We both saw an objejct kind of shaped like a peanut, is the best way to discribe it, Round on both ends and thin the middle, it almost looked like a Transport helicoptor. But there was NO Sound what so ever, it was totaly silent. It looked like metal and just the city lights making the bottom of it glow like a very dull reflection, He said he can see 3 light on it, I coulndn't. The object was heading due North comming from the South, it was about 2500 feet off the ground and we are guessing it was traveling about 150 mph or faster, but there was NO SOUND WHAT SO EVER. I have no idea what it was I have never seen or ever heard of anything like it, to this day we still are talking about it.
