We were walking from our house to our barn when we looked above the tree line and saw a light-colored, reflective cylindrical craft flying from east to northeast.
The sky was clear with no clouds, the temperature was right at 80 degrees, the humidity at 52%, and the wind was at NW 8 miles per hours.
The motion of the object caught our attention above the trees along our ridge. At first we assumed it was a plane, but as we kept watching it, we both agreed we could not see any wings, tail, or insignia on the object.
It made no noise and left no trail. It flew at a high rate of speed silently in a direct line with no abrupt changes of direction.
It disappeared above and behind the trees within approximately 30 seconds. We could not locate it again when we went up our driveway on the ridge to try to see it again.
Our reaction was wonderment of what we had just observed. It was unlike any flying object we have seen before including jets, prop planes, helicopters, hot air balloon, ultra lights, or blimps.
We absolutely could not identify this flying object.
