Bullet shaped object of chrome out of control.

On 8/6/18 at approximately 1:05 p.m., I saw, what appeared to be a helicopter, free fall to hover over the trees about a quarter mile from my building, less than 1000 feet up. It moved side to side as if troubled with control. I thought it was going to crash.

Then it turned sideways and the sun shone off it brightly. It was not a helicopter and seemed maybe bullet shaped, of bright chrome. It continued to attempt control then steadied itself for a few seconds before flying straight up above the clouds. I could still see it through a hole in the clouds and watched until it shot off to my right, traveling fast enough that the only reason I saw it again was because the sun hit the chrome once more, before it was out of view.
