Metallic like saucer perfectly still then travels at super velocity several miles, stops and returns, then disappears

I was in between a workout and looking out large glass windows of my gym south from a 4th floor gym. Downtown Dallas is clearly visible. I saw clear as day, a saucer like, grey metallic but not reflective object perhaps 45 degrees above my 4th floor elevation in the horizon and directly in front of me. It took me several seconds to mentally register what I'm seeing because it was surreal. The object was perfectly still and I'm guessing it was midway between my location and downtown and as a guess, perhaps 100 feet in diameter.

I stared at it for a few seconds in disbelief and quickly turned around to find someone else in my area to point it out to. I could not find anyone at all. I went back to the window and it was still there for a few more seconds.

Suddenly, it moved west (at seemingly the same the elevation) at such astonishing speed I could not believe what I was watching. It stopped cold where I can still see it at a distance, perhaps several miles away. It moved there in less than one second. Note, I watched it travel that long distance (it wasn't that it reappeared there).. Again, it stayed afloat for a few seconds.

Then, it returned to the exact same place where I first saw it - directly above and in front of me. It stayed there for perhaps 2-3 seconds and then it moved again at lightening speed due south (over downtown Dallas) at seemingly the same elevation and disappeared from sight.

I was shaken by what I saw and frustrated nobody was near me to point it out and confirm what I was seeing.

This happened a long time ago and will never forget it and have told no one because of fear of being ridiculed. I'm an electrical engineer and was as skeptical as anyone else but this experience has left me somewhat shocked and dismayed nobody else saw this or reported anything. I looked for newspaper clips for a week but saw nothing.

I'm compelled to tell my experience now because of recent articles on the topic and wanted to get this off my chest.
