Trapezoid/Diamond/Kite shaped mirrored object hanging perfectly still in the sunny cloudless sky

I was riding my motorcycle and something caught my eye off to the left. It looked like a mirror hanging in the sky. Although it could have been a kind of sail/flat object, there appeared to be something in its own shadow - of the same material and close enough to be considered part of the same object. The actual shape of the object was really peculiar. It could have been a trapezoid instead of a diamond/rhombus. It was so awkward that it didn't appear to have a defined top or bottom.

The reason it didn't appear to have a defined top is this: There was clearly a shine off the mirrored surface. If, what most likely appeared to be the flat top of the object was listing in a northeasterly direction, but the sun was setting toward the west, there is almost no way any known shiny object could have been reflecting light. It could be that is was slightly transparent. Also, the part that seemed to be underneath the main/likely top portion of the object appeared to be in its shadow, but was facing in the direction of the sun. It's almost like the light that was being reflected off the object was in direct contrast to what we know the sun to do - shine from one direction and create a shadow in the other direction.

I was so taken aback by the angle of the object and its corresponding shine - that to rule out it being a weird reflection in my visor or glasses, I shook my head and swiveled my line of sight towards the object in enough angles to confirm that it was not anything on my person that was causing the apparent object. The object continued to float motionless despite my efforts.

Because of the dangers associated with riding a motorcycle (in a construction zone, no less), I was using my peripheral vision as long as I could before needing to move my head/vision to see the road. I looked down to the road for a VERY quick assessment. When I looked up again, the object was gone. Nothing changed so dramatically in that split second that would have changed what I was seeing. The type of sunshine, angle of the shine, conditions, elevation, etc remained essentially identical as before I looked down at the road. It was there, then it wasn't.

The object appeared to be hanging over Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.
