Shiny round object seen in broad daylight, then suddenly disappears.

While Driving home on Hwy 417 at about 16:21, we saw a very bright round object in the sky. It was a beautiful sunny day. We could assume the object was metallic because of the bright shine reflecting off it. We were able to observe it for about 10 seconds before it disappeared. It did not seem to be travelling in any particular direction. It seemed to be more stationary in the sky. It was an oddity to us because it did not resemble any of the usual things flying around the city skyline, ie. planes, balloons, birds, ect.
