Object Extremely quite and maneuverable; could have been inches above our heads at anytime unaware to us

Back in January 2008 my son and I were out walking bates street when about 50 yard or less an object about the size of a car was floating near a telephone poll. Was shaped like a gray saucer I moved quickly as to chase it then it moved toward me. It was coming so fast that I turned back grabbed my son and shot toward a house then as I looked back it retreated. UFO was so silent that it could have been inches above our head and we would not have not known it was there without looking up. As it floated away it used remarkable movement and agility as it missed all the power lines and trees; then just floated over a house. Just me and my son were out on a very cold night everything was quite but in a populated housing area. I never believed in UFO's but now I just have to wonder what this object was.
