Silver Silent Object Possibly with no wings

Walking my two dogs at approx 7:30pm on 08/18/11. Moderate amount of air traffic overhead which is normal. Bright sunny evening with little to no low cloud cover at all. Winds less than 15mph and cool temps.

I had seen several planes fly over as we walked, all were small single engine craft or large SW Airlines planes. I noticed a plane way higher than other moving from west to east very slowly. It was a cylender shaped object and looked like it was bright silver which I assumed was from the setting sun. Several times my gaze was diverted from due to my dogs. I was able to re-locate it easily as it never deviated course which I found odd. The thing that struck me after several uninterrupted seconds of gazing was that this object appeared to have no wings what so ever.

I would like to state this it moved on a very straight line from west to east and never deviated once from its flight path. I never saw any wings but this could be due to it's height. However, I am not convinced this was the case which is why I am filing this report. Also, all aircraft that passed overheard could be heard yet this silver object was not making a sound I could hear.
