Very bright object spotted at dusk in Towson, MD

At about 6:10 I entered my room to grab my phone off my desk. I glanced outside and something caught my eye. I quickly realized it was a plane but then something crossed it's path. It was extremely bright and flew on a straight course, but faster than the plane. It looked smaller than the plane and shined a bright white, possibly reflected sunlight off a metallic surface. It also looked as if it left a small, almost see-through trail that was gone in seconds. It broke my line of sight when it passed in front of a cloud. I waited for it to come out the other side, but it never did. After about five minutes I stopped looking for it.
