Metallic hovering object seen near Offutt AFB, NE.

I was dirving down 84th street and noticed a metallic object in the sky near Offutt AFB, NE about 8 miles from where I was and 2,000 ft. in altitude. I thought it was an aircraft, such as a civillian aircraft that was crome ie "American Airlines", on approach to Epply Air Field but the object was not moving on a normal approach. As I pulled into a parking lot, the object appeared to be hovering. This peaking my curosity, I decided to watch this event from a higher elevation in town. As I was driving closer this object it descended and disappeared from my view, I waited and watched for minutes in a near by park but, never seen a trace, or have a clue of where it went. I don't believe it was a normal jet aircraft, even a Harrier aircraft does not begin a descent from that altitude.
