Red glowing disc moving at high velocity low to the ground, without a sound.

At about 2:30 am I was driving home from my girl friend's house. The streets were very quiet at this hour. I was on the west side of town driving east. Suddenly, dead ahead, I witnessed a red flat glowing disc, approximately 1 cm at arms length, race north across the visible sky towards Mission. Since Abbotsford is home to an international airport I was used to seeing and hearing many types of aircraft at many different alltitudes in under different conditions. I estimated it's altitude to be 250 feet, and it's speed at about 700 miles per hour. I instantly slammed on the breaks, stopped the engine, and got out of the car as quickly as l could, to catch the sound of crafts engines. There was no sound however. Abbotsford is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains. That is how I managed to gauge it's speed and alltitude.
