Metallic cylindrical object seen hovering over Johnson City, TN.

I was driving north when my passenger spotted a shining object in the sky. It was hovering for several minutes before it moved quickly to the west. It came to a stop and hovered in this spot for about 10 minutes. Occasionally, it would flash very brightly, like it was turning and reflecting the sunlight. We got to our destination and pointed the object out to three other people. Someone brought out a pair of binoculars but the object was so distant that they didn't reveal much. It looked cylindrical. As we were observing it, the object began to rise straight up and eventually disappeared out of sight.
