hovering metalik object in sky at day for 10 mins witnessed by 3 people that shot off with a big flame of fire.

Ok this was some years ago but i can not remember when. posibly 4-5 years ago from the day 2001 so in 1997-1996 Was in the car with my mum and small brother going home from my nans house. While on the way back in total daylight and in a built up buissy area at what must have been around 3:00 i looked up into the very lightly clouded blue sky and saw an object hovering. Now i have not writen a recording of this down so the exact info that follows may not be 100%. We pulled over in the car and parked in a side street to look at the object. to me the object looked to be a dull silver colour not verry shiny at all. it was what appeared to be a cone wedge like shape from the angle that i could see it. there was some detailing on the object but i can not recolect what it was just that it had it. we saw the object for around 10 minutes hovering in one spot and slightly altering its orientation in the sky over a slow period of time. Me my mum and my younger brother all witnessed this object. the object then changed it orientation to what seemed to be vertical and slowly rised upwards. this is when it god a bit more exiting and a large lokking flam of what looked like fire came out of the bottom (as u would see in a hot air baloon) and the object shot upwards very rapidly and out of site. I would also note that nasa was develaping a vertical take off and landing roket thing that i saw on discovery chan that has a similer sort of shape and movement in the air to the object i saw. I know that what i saw was not a NASA thing but it gives a compparison.
