Unusual object over Reno/Stead NV

I live in Stead, NV, just north of Reno. Yesterday, I stepped out to get my mail and a glint in the sky (like a small glint of metal) caught my eye. I looked at it and saw an unusual object moving from right to left, very high in altitude and moving unusually slowly. All I can say is that it was long, very large and if I had to make a comparison, would say it was cylindrical in shape, but can't be sure of that due to its distance.

There was another plane at high altitude in the sky with it some distance to the southwest (not in pursuit, probably a commercial aircraft) and it was clearly leaving a contrail but whatever this was, was not.

I leaned down to get my mail out of the mailbox, which took all of 3 seconds, looked back up fully expecting it to be there and it had completely vanished. I'm a little frustrated at myself for taking my eyes off of it, I would have liked to have seen how it just apparently blinked out.
