Cigar-shaped object hovering over mountains East of Sandy, UT

My friend & I witnessed a white, cigar-shaped object that hovered over the high Wasatch mountains east of Sandy, UT. It hovered, motionless, then moved (slowly) north. It stopped & started, moving slowly, before appearing to drop behind the mountains (into what is a wilderness area). No sound. No wings. No lights (even though at the brink of night). Not moving--until it did. When it turned, the setting sun glinted, briefly, off the object. From our vantage point, the object was about the size of a very large grain of rice.
