Metallic grayish ball

I saw a small ball that was white or silver coming towards me and my mother in the sky. I lived by a few car dealerships so I thought it might have been a balloon. When I was sure it wasn't a balloon, I thought it might me a training helicopter. We have a school nearby.

When it was overhead I could tell it was neither. It was a small sphere and the color was a metallic greyish color. I could tell that it was flying with "a purpose" and not just floating. I felt like whatever it was, it was surveying or looking at the ground.

There is NASA and Patrick Air Force Base nearby so I wasn't sure if it from those locations. I had a strong feeling at the time and still do, that it was not manmade.
