spotted hovering silent clyndrical object.

Waiting for bus, noticed bright object almost over head. About 1500 ft up. It hovered and was silent, then started to move up and to the northwest. It was a very bright white.

The sighting occured about 1/2 mile from airport SRQ. I am an ex navy meteorologist, so I have a lot of sky watching under my belt. This is the first time I have seen something I can not explain.
