craft gleaming in sunrise

I was driving East bound on Kingston Pike taking my son to school when above the sunrise there was a craft that was gleaming bright. It was shining on the opposite side than where the sun would have been reflecting on it. I actually passed up my turn because I was watching it. I tried to take a picture, but the craft turned at what appeared to be roughly a 90 degree angle and all but disappeared. The moment it changed direction I could just barely see a dark spot and then it was gone. My oldest son saw this as well, but he doesn't want to believe. Yes, I understand it could have been a plane, but it was the brightness of it that caught my eye. There was also a helicopter flying in the same area as the craft.
