Shiny tic/tac type ufo spotted in bowling green ky

The object was shiny metallic in the shape of a vertical tic/tac or cigar. The sun was setting and it traveled across the sky heading south/southwest. At first I thought it might be a plane making a turn , which would account for its elongated shape, but after several minutes with neither a change of direction (if it were a jet in a banking turn) or a change in shape/orientation....thatís when I realized it had to be something else. I immediately got online to find the location of the space station, it was located near Australia at the time. I guess there is a chance it may have been a low orbit satellite reflecting the setting sun, no way to verify that. My dog barked his head off the entire time it was visible.
