Large, metal, cylinder object over Saint Augustine Beach hovers and then disappears.

It was about 5pm this evening. I was on my back porch with my dad and stepmother when I noticed a bright light in the sky. It looked like the sun was reflecting off of a very large metal object. My backyard faces north and the object was northwest of us. It was much too high to be any sort of blimp and much too large to be a balloon. It sat very still. There were planes flying out of Jax International all around it. They all had tail lines. This didnít move, nor did it leave any type of trail. It had no lights. It just looked like a silver/white, huge object sitting in the sky. We never took our eyes off of it. Within about a minute or so, it just disappeared. This was my second sighting for all of us. My first was in St. Maarten at Simpson Bay and theirs was in Arkansas.
