I just got in my car and was traveling west when I noticed a bright, metallic object in the sky. I looked at the clock right away and saw that it said 3:02 pm Mountain Time.
I watched the object for a few seconds, then lost it in the sun. I drove back a bit to see if I could see it from where I first saw it, but had not luck so I drove forward again and spotted it again further west.
I only watched it for a few more seconds and then it was gone. The object was traveling southwest when I first noticed it.
As I said, it was metallic in color and reflected the sun. From where I saw it, it appeared to be cigar/ pencil shape. I do not know how far off it was, but if I was to hold a silver pen up to my face that would be about what I saw.
I have tried to contact the local airport and have not gotten hold of anyone. I have also called the sheriff’s office and no one else had reported anything at the time.
The object was just below the sun. Later in the day I watched a prop plane and a jet take off. They both made sound even after I could not see them anymore. This object made no sound.
