Extremely shiny metalic-looking cone-shaped object flying 200 feet above trees at about 400-500 mph

At 5:45 PM on 3/27/2003 I was driving eastward on Highway 7 in a rural area about halfway between Winchester and Berryville, Virginia. My wife was in our vehicle with me when we both saw an extremely shiny metallic-looking object flying northward about one mile ahead of us. The object was traveling at about 400-500 mph (based on my experience as a licensed airplane pilot) about 200 feet above the tree tops. It was difficult for me to determine a distinct shape, but my wife, who had more time to observe the object because I was driving, said it was cone-shaped or bullet-shaped. The object traveled in a straight line and at constant altitude until it was no longer visible over the tree-lined horizon after observing it for about 10 seconds. We heard no sound.
