Round metalic object over Los Angeles which disappeared after several seconds

Driving westbound transition from 110 to 10 freeway immediately past downtown Los Angeles. I looked up and saw a round object at roughly 40 degrees in western sky. I kept looking up at it several times. Mostly cloudless sky. Object would have been slightly smaller than the finger nail on my smallest finger. Object appeared metalic, not like a balloon and appeared stationary. At first I thought it may have been a helicopter, but did not see any rotors or tail. I thought it would turn and I would see the rest of the shape. I had to avert my eyes to change lanes and when I looked for the object again only a few seconds later, it was gone. No clouds close enough to get behind, no other objects in the sky, to high to have dropped to the ground or float away if a balloon.
