Silver/White disk shaped object seen

Driving through NW Lincoln, west on Adams Street towards 1st Street, I looked up and saw an object. Traveling South/soughwest to the North/northeast, I thought it was a military airplane, possibly a T-38 because I've watched them do touch and go's from the airport, which is approximately 2 miles west from my location. I noticed that the object was slowing down and at one point during the sighting, the object stopped. The difficulty of the sighting was that I was in a vehicle and the driving conditions would not permit me to stop the vehicle and go outside. But while I had stopped and was waiting for the traffic to clear, I looked north and I located the object in between a grove of trees. I turned north on 1st Street, towards the object. Directly in front of me, a car was turning left on a side street, therefore I lost the view of the oject. I located the object once the car had turned, continuing on there was a bicyclist in front of me, so therefore once again my attention was diverted from the object. When I safely cleared the bicylce, I then located the object once again, and at this time it was moving rapidly to the north/northeast. The unique feature of this sighting is I believe from my advantage point, when I first saw the object, it would have flown through the Lincoln Municap Airport Corridor.
