Disc shaped object stationary above neighborhood

I was driving along a two lane residential road just after 8:00 AM this past Saturday morning. Off to my right, I looked through the tree line and saw an object that look out of place through the trees, up in the air. It took a second for the thought to register in my mind and to take a second look. Upon looking again, I caught a clear look at it through an opening through the woods. I had an instantaneous feeling of fright consume my body because I know what I was looking at was really there. I immediatley slowed down to try and get a better look, but another car was coming up behind me and I felt obligated to move along. I hoped to drive along another 100 feet or so and be able to pull over and see through the trees, but when that opportunity came, I could not find the object. The area in which the object was was about 400-500 feet off the ground....well below the two "mountain" tops which it was flying between. This was not a plane or helicopter. I think some other people may have seen this...because I noticed an unusually high number of skid marks (I could smell the freshness) on that exact spot when I went back later that day. I only saw one object, it was metallic, disc-shaped, and probably 20 feet long. I don't feel 100% confident in the size of the object and distance...because I only got a good look for a couple of seconds.
