Grey circle gliding in the sky

At 9:26 pm I was heading to my car to take my grandfather home.

I looked up into the sky to look at the Big Dipper and after looking at it for a few seconds I noticed a grey circle floating in the sky. It was the size of a pencil's eraser.

Anyway, it was gliding across the sky in a perfect straight line, no wiggling at all, very steady, and at a constant speed. I would also say that it was stayed at a continuous height because it didn't get smaller or larger while it moved.

There was also no sound at all. It was completely silent.

So I tried to show it to my grandfather but his eyesight isn't that great. Then I banged on my brother's window to get him to come outside and bring me my binoculars.

He came out but he was impatient and didn't see anything. By this time it was going behind my roof so I decided to move in between my house and my next door neighbor's house to continue to watch it.

Unfortunately, I lost it. I knew that it was NOT a bird because I've seen birds at night before. And it was definitely NOT a plane because there were no lights whatsoever. I really wish I had had my binoculars!
