Rotating Rounded Octogon sighted Independence day

We were staying on the 23rd Floor of the River Palms Hotel. I was facing east with my son in front of the window. When I noticed something flying by the window. I had a set of binoculars from sight seeing on the table so I grabbed them and view the object. It was flying at Approx 50-60 miles per hour. It was a rounded Octagon in shape with what looked like some sort of raised ribs that had the shape of a Turbo Charger Impeller. It was Rotating around and was colored with what looked like Polished Aluminum or Chrome and Black Anodized Aluminum. After using other items in the area as a guide, I would approx it to be 50-75ft across. We viewed the object head Northward and gained altitude. We started viewing the item when it was at our eye level. It appeared on the Arizona side of the Colorado River Approx 1 mile East of the Bullhead city Airport. It was viewed by myself and my 11year old son. I was in the Airforce and have a good knowledge of Aircraft. I have never seen this item ever before. The sky was clear, my view was unobstructed and my Binoculars are good quality. I also noticed a private jet leave the airport heading the same direction approx 1-2min after seeing the object. We were about 1 mile below davis dam
