fast moving unblinking silent light raced across the sky.

yellow light moving south to north view against star lit night sky. Moved in perfect straight line. No sound. no blinking lights. Looked like a star but I could tell it wasnt as far away as the stars but much higher than a helicopter and a commercial jet coming by. I thought maybe it was a satelite! It had no trail or tail. No wings. Just a star sixed glowing light. It crossed from 1030 (just over the little mountain out back) to 230 (over the roof of our house and far enough out to fade into the glow of LA) in about 50 seconds. Way faster than I've ever seen a military jet come across especially up high. And it was so quiet. no sonic boom or nothing. Wonder if it showed on local radar? Ontario Airport, Corona Airport and Adams Ave Airport are all nearby. Would appreciate your feedback on this. PS we dont drink or do drugs. Didnt have camera available at the time. my wife saw it too.
