Cylinder object, sighted on Naval Medical Center spys on music festival for all to see.

I was at a music festival in front of the San Diego Aerospace Museum just enjoying myself and my friend put her shoulder on my arm to point out the Cylinder like object floating about 100 yards away. It was right across the street facing Southeast, right next to one of the buildings in the Naval Medical Center. The object was only about 100 feet in the air and made absolutely no movement. At about the same time some other people attending the festival began to take notice of the thing. One woman said it looked like a floating trash can. I started making my way towards the object and ran to the opposite sidewalk about 60 yards from where I was standing. The object still was in the original spot still and now I could plainly see that the bottom of the cylinder rotated in a counter-clockwise motion, and the top portion rotated clockwise. It was definitely made of a metallic material, and had a sort of box like protrusion on one side. I just sat there with my jaw gaping open and so did about 20-25 people around me. One Hispanic man was video taping it, while about 4 or 5 people were taking pictures. Then after about 30 minutes the object slowly moved around to the back of the building and was never seen again.
