Sighting Details

I was waiting in my car with my daughter for her karate lesson to begin at 1730. Around 1710 I was looking at the northern sky when what I thought at the time was a helicopter flying south bound and with a wobbling path at first then it straightened out and headed right at us. As it got closer to us I could see that it was not a helicopter and had a metallic surface. I started to point it out to my daughter and it stopped and seemed to hover and move eastward. My daughter spotted it and said maybe its a balloon, I said "no balloon moves at the rate of speed this thing was moving at us". I would say when it was traveling at us it was moving at the speed of a helicopter and about there flight path. Then my daughters next words were it looks like a triangle and I said yeah it does! At this point it started to move westbound and climbing in altitude. I pulled out my I-phone and started to take pictures. In the pictures the shinny object is moving west. At 1715 the doors open for the karate lesson so I watched it as we walked in and five minutes later I returned alone to my car and the object was out of sight. Please see attached pictures. THANKS!
