Location: Peoria, IL
Shape: Other
Duration:1 minute
Long pencil-shaped metallic color object, travelling at about the speed of a helicopter.

The entire sighting lasted for less than a minute. I saw the object in the afternoon sky, at cloud level. It travelled slowly against the wind and into an oncoming cloud. The object disappeard into the cloud and did not emerge from the other side. I waited about 5 minutes, by which time it should have emerged from the other side of the cloud, if the same rate of travel had been maintained.
