Shiny shape suspended in sky not moving

My two sisters and I were heading to the movie theater, already a little late for the intended show. As we turned off the highway, I noticed something shiny in he sky. It wasn't moving, just hovering in the air, and this is what perked my interest. It was definitely not a plane as it was not moving. I'm unable in my knowledge to come up with a rational explanation. My sister, who was driving, noticed it when I pointed it out, but as she was driving, she had only caught a few brief glimpses of it. My other sister was as oblivious to it. As background, we make fun of her for never being able to spot or find anything. As we were turning off the highway, the object went out of view due to a hill obstructing our quickly changing view. The object was shiny, glistening high in the sky. I'm not familiar with the stratosphere or troposphere and find it difficult to describe it's height above ground. It was high, but within what I would guess is the troposphere. It was farther in distance from us, across terrain, compared to it's distance above the ground. Much farther. The shape wasn't very definitive in form--the closest thing I can compare it to being a polished stone. I hope that I've included enough information and hope that I'm not wasting your time by sending this. Thanks.
