Pill shaped, bright object with no wings over Topeka KS

i saw a pill shaped, shiny object flying slowly past my apartment while I was sitting outside on my lawn swing. i was reading but looking at the sky every few minutes to see what the chemtrails were doing - there were about 4 chemtrails way up in the sky (so high that i couldn't see the airplanes). all of the sudden i saw this pill shaped, really shiny object heading south. it was way lower then the chemtrails. and it was way more shiny then an airplane, almost like it was chrome reflecting the sun or white reflecting the sun. I kept looking for the wings but couldn't see any. also, the shape was not a perfect pill shape as it sort of curved in a bit in the center, so it was almost the shape of an infinity sign only not as exaggerated in the middle. i kept trying to see the wings but never saw any. and i kept trying to tell what color it was but it was so bright (white light) that I assumed it was a chrome color reflecting the sun. but it might have been self-lit, i don't know. i thought of running into the house to get my camera but i knew i was going to loss sight of it as my apartment faces north and it would be over my porch roof in a matter of seconds. once it got over my roof, i rushed into the apartment, grabbed my camera and rushed to the south window to see if i could shoot it. but it was nowhere in the sky. (my apartment is on the 3rd floor and i should have been able to still see it as it wasn't moving very fast.) there was no noise. I can't estimate how high it was or how big it was as I had nothing to compare it to in the sky. there were some light wispy clouds way up high and those weird chemtrails streaking across the sky but other then that it was a clear blue sky. i have seen airplanes go by and even though they are further away and higher, I can make out their wings. this one had no wings that i could see. it did not leave any kind of trail.
