Metallic Disk Flying Over Morehead

I was driving on KY 32 in the area beside McDonalds and the hospital. I was heading out of town (on the same side of the road as McDonalds). I noticed something out of the corner of my eye and immediately shifted my focus to the object. It was metallic in appearance and was shaped like a thick circle. It was moving at an "unearthly" rate of speed. The thing that most caught my attention was how fast it was moving. It was so close that I could hear sort of a seering sound when I rolled my window down. It appeard as if it was emitting heat (kind of like the road looks on a hot summer day - sort of a haze). I felt like the object must have hit the ground on the other side of the hill based on its speed and rate of decline. I have no explanation as to what this object was. It was travelling 3 times faster than a jet and was shaped like a thick, metallic plate. Almost looked like a weightlifting disk on a bench press. Its hard to estimate the size, but it was about the size of a nickel if I hold it straight out in front of my eyes.
