Morning sighting of bright white-metal barrel-shaped object fly's overhead with incredible speed and disappears into a pinpoint.

This morning about 8:30 AM my husband and I where sitting on our patio drinking our coffee. We live fairly close to the airport and so it is common for us to view jets flying over at different altitudes and coming and going in all directions. I happened to look up and saw a few jets pretty far up and than this object caught my eye. The object was not near the other jets. It was different than anything I have ever seen. It was shaped similar to a barrel shape meaning top and bottom where more narrow than the mid-section. It was flying vertical with the narrow points of the object one facing down to the earth the other facing up. It looked like bright whitish metal and it was moving at an incredible speed. I sat there and watched this bright white metal barrel thing fly faster than the jets and than just disappear into a pinpoint.
