Metallic donut-shaped disc UFO

So, I am in college for meteorology. On this day, a classmate and I were studying cloud formation. While filming we both clearly saw (with the naked eye) a donut-shaped, metallic disk traveling at a high rate of speed which seemed to appear, then disappear. We caught this event on video. It was heading south.

My father is a pilot and was a fighter pilot for more than 20years, and I am an amateur pilot myself. Growing up on naval bases all my life, I have developed a keen eye when observing the sky. Never before have I seen anything like this.

I am familiar with and do well with spotting iridium flares, but this was no flare. It appeared to be metallic with a concave center. We didn't hear any sound coming from it.

I am a skeptic, so over the past couple of months I've been trying to debunk this. It's come time for me to go public with it, as it is driving me crazy, trying to figure out what this is.

Thanks for your time.
