Sighting Details

I was heading home from work at about 3:30 pm on a week day. As I turned into the road that I lived on, I saw an object, saucer shaped, it surface covered with many colors and a stylized sun symbol on one side of it. It was tumbling end over end. I assumed it was an escaped balloon, but very large... until I noticed the end over end movement was consistent, and it was moving in a westerly direction not wavering up or down like a balloon would be being tousled by the wind. I followed the object as long as I could and it's initial motion never changed... end over end, level with the ground moving at about 15 mph at just above treetop level. I heard no sound, but as it passed over one house in the neighborhood, a man was outside raking his yard and he never looked up... which I thought was strange but if it was making no noise, then maybe that's the reason he didn't notice it. The whole sighting took about 5 minutes before it moved from view.
