Far away stationary object seen then suddenly disappeared

On a relatively clear afternoon with some clouds in the sky and the sun shining brightly, I saw a stationary gleaming object to my west, at least a couple miles away in the clear blue sky, maybe 35 degrees above the horizon. It was so far that I could not make out the shape, but it looked as if it was reflecting sunlight off of it, and it was the size of a dot.

If I took my eyes off of it, I had to carefully scan the region of space again to find it. It was stationary. I did not ever see it move the entire time I watched it. However, when I looked away for a more extended period, perhaps 15 seconds, I could not find it again. There was no streak of vapor associated with it.
