Spherical metallic UFO spotted in Lake Tahoe Ca

I was down by Lake Tahoe on the southern side taking pictures of the sunset. This is something I do quite often since I moved to Lake Tahoe. As I was standing there on the beach I noticed a small very spherical object moving awkwardly around the clouds. It looked metallic which is why I believe it was so shinny because the sunset was reflecting off the metallic surface. Initially the brightness of the object caught my attention but then I realized that this object was moving much faster than a plane and in any direction without losing speed. I watched this object for about a minute while I was trying to zoom my camera in close enough to get a good photo of it. I managed to get one clear picture of the object. I didn't see it leave the area. I looked up from the LCD screen of my digital camera after I tried to take a picture of it and it was just gone.
