Chrome Rectangle Box UFO floating in sky.

I was walking with my friend to our local train station through a small paddock, We had to be careful because of Magpie birds swooping people. So my friend and I would take turns looking up to make sure we weren't about to be attacked by these birds.

I turned around to check the sky behind us and i seen this rectangle Chrome box thing floating in the air (not moving) about 200 meters from the ground. I'm assuming there was a heat source as the object was shimmering like the distant ground on a hot day. It was around the size of car but perfectly squarish/rectangle. At first, it looked like a silver refrigerator placed sideways in the sky, it was very shiny.

I told my friend somethings floating in sky and he turned around, his first words was "is that a weather balloon?" I responded, "Where's the balloon part and how is floating" right then the train we heading to beeped its horn to signal people it was near and we both looked away from the UFO box thing as the sound startled us, we turned back and it was gone.

My friend now pretends he didn't see it but i think its because his wife is religious.
