Shiny capsule-shaped object seen over Pittsburgh

As I was exiting my car in the driveway I saw a commercial airplane overhead making it's way to the Pittsburgh International Airport west of the city. While looking at the plane I noticed a bright object below the plane traveling SE to NW, very slowly. The object had no wings, was completely silent, and reflected the evening sun on what appeared to be a highly reflective surface. Feeling the impulse to get a better look, I ran into my house to get my field binoculars for a closer look, but by the time I got back outside to the front of my house, it was nowhere in sight. In my opinion, since it was traveling so slowly, it boggled my mind to have flown off so quickly by conventional methods. This leads me to the conclusion that it wasn't anything conventional.
