Flying beer barrel shaped metallic object

I was in my room upstairs when looking at the sky I saw what I initially thought was a party heluim ballon which has been let loose and moving over the houses.

What was odd is that it kept becoming intense black and then fading to the point that I could not see it. I looked at it through binoculars and saw that it was in fact a higly polished stainless steel object. It had the form of a beer barell but about 5 times bigger. No openings or windows of any kind.It was moving and was inclined at a 45 degrees angle. I think that the reason it changed intensity was that it had such a polished reflective surface that it was changing the way ambient light was being reflected on its surface.

I watched it until it was so far I could not see it anymore.
