silver/gray sphere moving silently east to west over Sandy, Utah

I am from NC and was in Utah working on the exterior of a house. When I looked up at the side of the house, I noticed a round object moving across the sky at a high rate of speed. I looked up to watch the sphere, which was a silver/gray color. At first I thought it was perhaps a balloon. It moved so quickly overhead that I had to turn around to try to follow it. When I turned around, I lost sight of the object and was not able to locate it again. There was no sound. The sky was clear, with no clouds. I still thought that it might be some kind of a balloon, but I checked the directions and discovered that the object had traveled from east to west. I have never seen anything like this before personally, but it appeared to be the same type of object I once saw on TV which had appeared over Mexico City.
