2nd sighting; Metallic object rotating in the morning sky.

This is the second Sunday morning in two months that I have stepped unto my balcony, looked to the NW and observed this metallic-like sphere/triangle shaped object in the sky, very high up. Higher than a Skywriiting plane! Each occurence has been against a crystal-clear bluesky backdrop. You can make out that the object seems to rotate in place; the sun can been seen glinting off the object as it rotates. With the naked eye, it appears to be oval; but in the picuture I canptured, zoomed in to 1600%, the object seems to be triangular.

Each time I would call out my wife to confirm what I was seeing; she could immediately see the object, on both occasions, and it looked to be the same object, in about the same location in the sky.

I also noted commercial airliners, high flying birds (gulls) and even the Moon; these all help reference how high the object was. You would really have to be looking for it with the naked eye or you would simply see a clear blue sky.
