Stationary Silver object seen at very high altitude appeared to be descending while reflecting sunlight

On July 9, 2007 between 17:00 and 17:30 hours a friend and I were sitting on lounge chairs by a pool in Fullerton, CA and looking in a Southeasterly direction.

At an extremely high altitude we observed what appeared to be a silver object that occasionally reflected sunlight. At first it appeared to be stationary but then we believed it to be falling or descending. It also appeared to be drifting further toward the Southern sky as it descended.

We watched it for approximately 15 minutes as it moved in front of some clouds and through other clouds.

At one point a small single engine plane flew over at a much lower altitude than this object. During the 15 minutes it never appeared to get much lower.

At first I thought it might be a parachute, but it appeared that at least one of the surfaces that reflected light was flat and metallic.

After 15 minutes I went inside to get a pair of binoculars. By the time I returned my friend had lost sight of the object in the clouds.
