Bright Light Streaked Across Sky Moving North East

On April 7, at approximately 8:45 pm, in Cave Creek, AZ., I saw a bright object streak across the sky. It moved in a straight line at a slight upward angle and vanished. The object was travelling north/east. The entire sighting lasted approximately 5 seconds.

The object was about 20 times bigger than what a planet appears to be in the sky. I would guess its flight path to have occurred about 250 ft from the ground.

It seemed slower than a meteor but way faster than a plane. I would describe the movement as streaking across the sky.
