Giant Mettalic/Silver almost transparent craft seen over Caldwell Mill Road and ValleyDale Rd

Coming from work from Highway 280 at the corner or Valleydale Rd and Caldwell Mill Rd, a craft appreared in BROAD DAYLIGHT way above and started dropping very fast. At fist it looked like some type of airplane that was about to crash. Then we noticed it was not an airplane, helicopter, blimp, balloon or any variation of either. Additionally, we noticed that as it was descending very fast that it was moving sideways, actually different from the direction the main part of the craft was pointing. Then is stopped in mid-air. I mean a complete stop. There was traffic but it was pretty close to the tree line and a craft that big should have made some noise. The size I would say would be roughly equivalent to a commercial air liner and the color was a metallic/silvery almost transparent color. Almost camouflaged to be honest. Depending on which angle you were looking into the sun, I doubt that everybody could have seen it. We videoed a few seconds on if on ou! r Android X phones then it disappeared. We were very happy that we got the video, only to learn seconds later that the video was corrupted. I am a seasoned Software Engineer than have much experience in video/audio and I could not get that video to play in any way for any reason. This was even after I downloaded it from the phones and tried some other video editing. It was utterly and totally unusable. This would make the 3rd craft I have seen and the 1st one she has seen. This one however looked nothing like the other two. This one was shaped kind of like a giant bird type shape with wings slightly folded back and a raised front. I researched secret military planes that night and didn't find anything even remotely close, especially anything metallic/silver and that would be almost transparent in broad daylight.
