I was standing in my driveway, I looked up and saw a circular craft coming into view from a northwest direction. The size was like something 5 inches in diameter, held at arm's length. Surface was dull metallic, illuminated by city lights, a pink glow. It was completely silent and had no exhaust, no visible running lights. Path was a slight arc across sky towards southwest. It lasted approx. 1 minute. I immedi- ately called a MUFON field investigator, reported details at approx 9:05. I am a trained observer with a private pilot's license, a graduate of the MUFON Field Investigator Class, and was wearing lenses which correct my vision to 20/20.
