A bright shinny silver object over University Parkway

I was driving west on University Parkway between I-75 and US 301 when I noticed something sparkling in the sky. It was a shinny silver silver colored object. I slowed to about 20mph and noticed other drivers looking up as well. It was a half moon shaped object that seemed to be changing directions. As i got closer to it I could see the shape, as if when it was level it was very thin. It was turning around, so it went to a 45 degree angle and to a 90 degree angle then very thin again as it went from South to North. It wasnt moving very fast because when I first saw the "sparkle" it was about 45 seconds until the shape started to change and I could see the definition. There were no clouds, birds, or airplanes in the area.
