Shiny spherical object in broad daylight

Today while my dad and brother were playing catch they noticed a small spherical object shining in the blue sky. They called me outside and its funny because I was watching the X-Files at the time and I went outside to see what the fuss was about and i look up in the sky and there was a bright shiny object. I watched it for a couple seconds then ran inside to get my camera to take some pictures of it. I dont know how to upload pictures on here but i have them if someone wants to see them.

Anyways I took a couple pictures of them and then watched the object for about 2-3 minutes and the object seemed to move for a couple seconds then stop and then start to move again and so on. So then looked down at my camera for about 5 seconds to turn it off and I looked up and the object was gone.

Im not jumping to any conclusions about it being an alien but it was definitely a UFO. I looked up if it was possible to see satellites in daylight but a lot of the websites and! results all said that iridium flares are possible but very uncommon. also the object was a sphere and it was not long like the iridium flares.

Maybe it was some sort of drone or military surveillance aircraft but i do not know.
