Bright metallic sphere object moving at extreme and slow speeds over Victorville, CA USA

At the time of 19:56 near the city hall of Victorville, CA, a friend of mine and I were inside my truck facing the South-East direction as we waited at a stop sign to proceed on to the main road. As I first came to the stop sign, I noticed an extremely bright metallic looking sphere in the sky that flew across at speeds much faster than the speed of any aircraft or missile that I have ever seen or heard of. Its height was around 2,000 to 4,000 feet above ground and from checking 2k quality surveillance footage of our property camera that faced to the West. I determined that the object did not come from behind me and perhaps from above me. It flew to the East which was the direction I was facing at that high speed and then after nearing the 15 freeway a few miles out it began to dive at a forty-five degree angle at half of its previous speed until it was a thousand feet or less above ground and it nearly came to a full stop just outside of our view in which a large building was in the way of our line of sight. As we drove past the building to get a better view, it flew away travelling at its top speed in the South-East direction. The object was by far the brightest object in the sky shining a white/grey absolute metallic looking shine as if it was reflecting the sun. At that time of day, the sun has just set behind the nearby mountains and was hardly visible at all. The sky was mostly clear and there was still near full daylight outside. As the IT tech for the large facility in which I work at here, I went back and searched all of the surveillance footage from dozens of high definition cameras, but sadly all except for one camera was aimed high enough to view at the sky which was the North-West facing camera which is the one I used to see if the object came from behind my location. My roommate who was a Marine and I have never seen anything like that object online or from any other media source. I can only wish that one of our cameras had caught that occurrence, the object was so vivid an! d pronounced that it would have spoken for itself on video as it was the brightest object I have ever seen in the sky other than the sun itself. What is also interesting is that this occurred one day after the night a double meteor storm (Southern delta Aquariids/alpha Capricornids) was to be the most active. This object did not act in any manner of a meteor, it was very low flying, greatly reduced speed, was visible for a large number of seconds and was undeniably metallic.
