That is, indeed, very unusual. Enough so that I would be inclined to say it wasn't a meteor. Can you describe its flight in any more detail? Was it a steady light, or did it brighten and then dim or appear to go out? Did it leave a visible smoke trail at any point? I'm thinking it might have been a satellite. What compass points did it traverse and which was it moving toward? That sort of thing might be helpful in identifying it. If it were a satellite, then a time to the nearest quarter minute or so and your location within a few miles would help us determine which one, or to rule it out.
