Bright large cigar shaped UFO in plain view for several minutes.

My friend and I were deer hunting on the Mogollon Rim near Black Canyon Lake. it was just after sunset (still fairly light out) and we were driving back towards highway 260 when we saw directly in front of us this cigar shaped object. It was verticle and canted to the left a bit. it was very bright as if was on fire or the sun was reflecting off it. we stopped the vehicle and sat and watched it move across the horizon well above the tree line. We were facing somewhat north and the object moved basically from east to west. we watched it for at least 5 minutes before it was too far to the west to see. it moved steadily and made no noise and made no strange movements. it maintained the verticle slightly tilted to the left position the entire time. the sky was clear and the object was in plain view. the object was large. there were no colored lights emitting from it.
