small silvery object blends into surrounding sky

The day is approximate, probably an early spring morning and very clear with no clouds. I walked outside to observe the sunrise and noticed a small silvery stationary object several miles up glistenig in the early morning sunrays..At first I thought it was a planet, but it was too large (slightly larger than a pin head held at arms length), then perhaps a weather ballon..however what got my attention was that as the sky became just a little brighter, the object rapidly lost its refelction and within 5-10 seconds totally disapperared from view. It seemed to take on the same color as the surrounding clear blue sky, and could not be seen after that.
