Bright White/Sliver Cigar Shaped Craft sighted Iowa

This day I remember because it was my birthday, we were out in the hot tub. Was me and a friend. She is the one that spotted it. At first it looked like a pin point of bright light almost like a airplane headlight. We continued watching it until it came into focuse. We both noticed its color, white metallic or sliver metallic color. We both seen that it didnt have fins or wings nothing like an airplane at all. Then we noticed that it was rounded almost pill like, we both then said a cigar! We watched this thing just glide along, no sound at all was present. The back ground was in residential neighborhood. Like stated we were in the hot tub. This object was low enough to give us this detial but not low enough to tell if there were people or windows or writeings. Although to me it seemed almost solid. Also noticed that the object left no trails like a plane.
