Shiny diamond/gray craft

A few years ago, I was traveling alone by car on provincial road 581. As I was leaving a building on the road, at a speed of about 40mph, I noticed an object on my right. It was a total surprise to me and I said out loud to myself "what is it?" It was suspended close to the buildings, 2-3 meters above the grain field, about 20-30 m from the road. Around 6am, the rising sun was shining brightly on my right. The object was shiny, reflected the sun's rays very strongly, and did not shine with light. The vehicle didn't seem big. It is estimated to be between 0.5-1.5 meters in size. The shape resembled a sports motorcycle helmet, viewed from the side, or a saucer with a bottom protruding from the bottom, positioned with the wider surface upwards at an angle of 45% to the surface. I saw it for literally a second or two between the trees along the road. Unfortunately, there was a turn in a moment, so the next minute I realized what I saw, I drove a long distance in 2-3 seconds and when I looked in the mirrors, I couldn't see it anymore. To this day, I still can't come to terms with it, why I didn't turn around/stop. Years later, it bothers me. The place of observation is approximate, I don't remember exactly where on the DW581 road I saw the object. These are facts, now I would like to share my thoughts about this situation.

I had the impression that the object was waiting for me to pass so as not to be noticed. I had to move my head to the right almost 90 degrees from my track to see it. I think it was surprising not only for me but also for the subject. The second option I am considering is that it could "charge" itself using sunlight. It was positioned at an angle of 45 degrees to the surface, but at the same time at an angle of about 90 degrees to the rising sun. Since this "encounter" I have become more interested in the topic of UFOs. If I were to compare the object I saw with any object recorded in the world, it would most closely resemble the object from a well-known film, a freeze frame of which I attached to my testimony.
