Round bright silver object w/ belt wobbled across the sky

While stopped at a red light at the corner of Post & Clove, I sensed a strange low vibration. Looking out the car window I noticed birds flying eraticly into trees. Just then My father and I noticed a Very bright silver ball wobbleling across the sky infront of us. The object was bright silver Round or sphereical with a belt of slightly darker silver acrossit's equator region. It wobbled like crazy but flew in a straight line. We lost sight of it as it passed behind a tree and then a building. At that time the light changed and we spead to our driveway to catch it as it passed over my back yard(which was in it's flight path). But it never passed! it must have excelerated or disappeared. It could not have landed because there are to many houses in the area, I asked around and we were the only ones who witnessed it.
