Cylinder shaped object sighted above Wichita, KS

It was around five PM and my dad was taking me home from my sisters house. We were heading north and i was looking east towards some birds and train tracks. Past the tracks where large grain elevators, i noticed a object above the grain elevator. I told my dad to turn to the right to see the object more closer. The object was about 40 degrees from us and about 300 ft away. Its shape was like a cylinder and was some what matalic looking.

It started to move south as we got a better view. I got the feelong it knew we saw it, we were moving parallel to the object. My dad did not think it was a UFO. He told me its just a plane. He decided to turn the truck back towards home and i looked back to see it one more time but the object was gone.
