Quoting ChrisAnthemum:
If it was visibly moving fast, a meteor. Moving more slowly, a high flying plane or satellite. Not visibly moving, a comet or possibly a contrail.


It definitely wasn´t a plane unless it was crashing to Earth! It was moving fairly fast, but not like I have seen meteors do before when they just streak very quickly across the sky. This happenened possibly in around 3-4 seconds cause I took a sequence of photos (of which this is the only one not blurred, sadly), and this meteor/whatever is on all of them, but moving downwards in each photo....
