silver, blimp-shaped object seen over downtown Atlanta

My son and I were stopped at a redlight when I observed what I first took to be a blimp over the skyline if Atlanta in the distance. I poited it out to my son, but then oticed the silverish oject was traveling much too fast for a blimp at that distance. As my son and I watched, the object traveled at a diagnal path ad wiked out. It immediatlly reappeared in the same spot, but traveling i a completely different angle.We both watched this strange flight until the light tured green and we were honked at to proceed. No aircraft I have ever seen is capable of flying i this strange manner. My son and I were perplexed to what it was and kept askiing each other if we had really seen what we saw!! Very eerie.
