Reflective silver UFO seen during a lightning storm.

I walked outside during a lightning storm right before it started to downpour and noticed a black metallic object in the sky travelling further away.

As it began to pick up speed you could notice the object spinning and had a silver/metallic tint to it.

After about 50 seconds you can see it reflecting the trees beneath it, and it disappeared.
