Cylinder or Cigar over Grand Rapids

I was taking a walk downtown when I happened to look up and to the west noticed a silver cylinder in the sky traveling about 5 or 10 miles per hour. At first I thought it was a plane, because it was made out of shiny metal and seemed rather large and only about a few hundred feet away from me. I didn't see any wings on it and I didn't hear any sound. At arms length it was approximately 3 inches in length.

There were some cumulus clouds in the sky, so when it passed behind the clouds instead of in front of them, I was shocked. It was enormous! Possibly 400 to 500 feet in length.
