Round disc seen heading north over East Ottawa Canada, Beechwood area May 25 18:30

We were sitting on a deck facing North, looking across a creek with greenspace/park area, with Beechwood Cemetery in the distance; a clear sunny beautiful evening, slightly breezy. A black/dark grey round something appeared above the cemetery fairly high in the sky, changing it's axis and then steadied itself parallel to the ground and moved at a constant rate (fairly fast) and in a straight line north until it was out of sight. We thought it was a bird but there was no flapping and it was faster than a bird, and a round, disc. We don't know what it was, it wasn't a balloon because it didn't continue to go higher, and it didn't adjust it's speed to the wind, fast then slow or vary in direction like a balloon or kite. I would say it was about 2500-3000 feet in altitude; I don't know what it was, just what it wasn't. It was not silver, had no lights, no "crest" or hump shape in the center that we could see, but then we were not looking at it horizontally, but at an upward diagonal direction. I would be interested if anyone else saw it. One airplane jet passed shortly after, <3 minutes later, not in pursuit though, but across it's flight path, after it was gone.
