Saucer-like craft flies northwest

The sun was setting, and I was inside, at the window, looking northwest at the Gastineau Channel. I saw an object moving northwest. I watched it until it was too small to see; also, some bushes that were in front of my field of vision blocked it.

The object was a saucer shape. It was much smaller than a commercial airplane. It was bright, from reflected sunlight. I assumed that it was metallic, and its color was probably silver.

The object moved in a very straight line, with some tilting on its axis from one side to the other. Its motion was quick, and silent, as far as I could tell. It also seemed to make little change in altitude.
