my mom and I saw a metallic object fly very quickly in a diagonal line downwards from left to right then a tree blocked our view

My mother and I were sitting at a stoplight, and over the treeline (we were right across the street from a park)we saw a small object with a metallic-like shine fly diagonally down from right to left at approx. a 60 degree angle from the ground. It flew quickly, and our view was blocked by one of the evergreens across the street. It looked like it was very far away. It seemed like the sunlight was reflecting off of a sort of rim along the side; there was also above it that curved toward the shiny part which made us think that it was 3-d and circular. . .I hope that made sense! We see planes flying to and from the airport all the time, and we discussed that we have never seen one fly that quickly, or at such a strange angle.
