QQ Silver shining sphere traveling towards sun, radio reception scrambled, vanished into thin air

I was traveling south on Hwy.19 from Cuba to Steelville. I noticed a silver shining sphere like object to the west of the noonday sun. I watched the object move east towards the sun at the rate of speed of a comercial airliner. I had to keep glancing up as it moved closer to the sun due to the glare. At the same time I noticed the reception on my radio became poor and scrambled. I also noticed the vehicle traveling ahead of me had slowed down and appeared to be watching the object also. As I descended the hill into Steelville the object disappeared.
