strange shiny silver object flew fast over the hill, stops, then disappears

OK. I don't know how to explain this. I just saw something fly over the hills behind my house. I usually sit on the back porch in the afternoons, leaning against the screen door, looking at the cows on the hill. 10 minutes earlier as usual I was quietly observing them. Then from over the hill this silver thing flies in a fast, straight line, just over the hill. It kept moving forward a little, but seemed to have stopped and turned around. It stayed in place until it found a direction. It started moving to the right slowly. I was standing up by this time and moving closer to the fence. By the time I got to the fence the thing disappeared. It was gone. It didn't fly over the hills again, it had already moved a good way out from them. Unless it moved faster than I could see... I saw it and then it disappeared.

I was thinking, maybe it was a balloon? But the wind was going over the hills in the other direction. When it came over the hills in my direction it was coming fast, then it stopped. It still moved upward and north the last time I saw it. I distinctly saw the shape of it and it wasn't round, nor was it oblong, it was not the shape of a balloon. It looked like a "flying saucer" with a lid on it. It was flat and shiny on the bottom, and the top looked like an oval cut in half and attached to it. It was definately bigger than at least eight big black cows put together. I saw its dimensions after it flew over the hill and turned around abruptly. It moved to the left, then back to the right, slowly moving toward the Bay and shifting direction, until it disappeared. It was silver and shiny and distinctive in the clear blue sky. There was nothing else up in the sky at that time. Nothing flies that low over the hill in the direction toward my house. I can't think of anything that would move so erraticly. It sure wasn't a bird or a plane.
