static silver sphere

One afternoon in Mexico City my husband was laying on the grass taking a nap when suddenly he asked me if I knew what was this bright thing in the sky. I looked up and I saw like a little silver shiny sphere. It did not seem to have light by its own. We think it was just reflecting the sun's light because it was a really sunny and windy day with blue sky and few clouds (not so common in Mexico City). At the beginning we thought it was a metallic ballon (those for children) but it was a windy day and we were very surprised because this little sphere was static just like a light bulb in a room. We estimated it was very high because we saw an airplane passing by and the sphere seemed to be even higher. The same happened with the clouds. In fact after approximately 10 minutes we could not see it any more because some clouds passed by just under it. My husband concluded that maybe it was a geostationary satellite. That is why we could not appreciate its movement. But days after I searched in the internet and it did not look like one. Besides these kind of satellites are very far from the Earth. I also looked for weather ballons but apparently these kind of balloons have some movement and they are not so big. If this was a a weather balloon it should have been a very big one because it was very far and we were able to see it. Finally we concluded that maybe it was a NASA new device for experimentation.
