Floating gray cylinder seen dropping down behind some trees

I was sitting in the parking lot of a local grocery store waiting for a friend when I looked up in the sky and saw something shaped like a soda can floating around horizontally. It was grayish-silver in color. From my position it was about 40-45 degrees up and about the size of a business card held at arms length. I heard no noise from it. It then sunk very rapidly behind some trees still in a horizontal position. About this time my friend returned and I told her about it. We drove over to where I saw it drop down (about a mile away) but found nothing.
