high flying reflective object, very fast, slightly larger than starsize with flipping appendage.

I was looking up at my grandson who was climbing my radio tower when I saw a bright object streak overhead. Just about star size, reflective like it was reflecting the sun. It looked like it had something on the back that was flipping back and forth also reflective. I didn't see it leaving a trail and their was no sound. Just guessing maybe 20,000 feet up. I thought it was a high altitude baloon but it was going very fast. I estimate it was going about four times faster than the jets in the flight path to DFW overhead. The path it took was in a straight line to the west. When I went around on the other side of the house to try and see it the sun was in my eyes.
