Saucer skirts clouds, disappears

A friend of mine had come over to visit and we were in my backyard with the dog.

As if compelled to, I looked up and my eyes focused on something moving. It was a partly cloudy day, but clear, not hazy or humid - blue skies dotted with white cumulus - we were looking SSE and it was traveling from east to west. I judged the altitude to be a couple thousand feet in the air and it was moving along the edge of a cloud, skirting it. It looked almost like a frisbee and it was silver. Maybe 3 seconds after focusing on it the craft seemed to turn 90 degrees onto its side where it took on a saucer or circular appearance. It then disappeared among the clouds it had been skirting. My friend and I looked at each other dumbfounded and quickly went inside.
