Low, hovering object that appeared to be an airplane, but was too low and slow in the sky, then disappeared.

My four daughters and I were traveling east on Alameda in our Suburban. In the distance we saw a strange airplane which appeared to be ascending from the ground where there is no airport, south to north. It turned and came straight toward us, traveling west on Alameda. It appeared to be an airplane, flying very slowly and low in the sky, but it stopped and hovered above and to the north of us. We saw other drivers watching, open mouthed at the same time. It seemed to just stop in the air, wasn't as high as it should have been for the size of the aircraft. It tilted on its left wing, then I drove past it as it was unusual and scared me, seemed it might crash. Looked in my rearview and the girls looked out the back window, but it was gone. Just disappeared. We couldn't see it anywhere behind or in front of us. It looked metallic, gray, kind of like a fighter airplane, but did not act or sound like one. I have no idea what it was.
