Saw a shine object hovering next to the moon. Looked like the sun glinting off metal

We were leaving work when my wife said "there is the Moon" and I looked up and saw something that I tought was a very bright star at the 9 o`clock postion. I then step back and looked again and said to my wife "what is that next to it?" We then saw a flash like the Sun glinting off metal. It sat at the 9 o`clock position for like 3 mins then shot off towards the left of the Moon but staying about at 9 o`clock. We then decide to try and rush home and see if we see it through binoculars. As we were driving down the street we kept watching for it at stop signs and saw it shoot to the 12 o`clock position above the Moon. We waited and then saw it take off again towards the 9 o`clock position and then disappear. The whole time it was like the Sun was flashing of metal. and it was hovering when we first saw it for like 3 mins.
