UFO went overhead at a high rate of speed and continued north-northwest.

The "object"rose from behind a house as we were facing the north and we thought it was a helium ballon then my wife said "do helium balloons rise that fast?" and I told her that I thought that it must be a "fresh ballon" and right after I said that it appeared to move overhead and continued to do so until it was over head following a very linear path towards the north-northwest and I watched it until it went out of site the entire episode lasted for aprox. 45-60 seconds.
