Duration:1 minute?
silver cigar shape

I'm not sure if what I saw is anomalous or not, but it seemed odd to me. It was a silver/metallic, apparently cigar shaped object (maybe smaller in the middle?). I couldn't see any wings and it didn't make any noise that I could hear. An airplane passing below it going in the opposite direction (eastish?) made me notice that the object didn't have any sort of lights- only the reflection of the sun on its surface. I know nothing about airplanes. The only thing I can tell you about how high it was is that the airplane below it (a big commercial one coming in for a landing at Nash. airport) was red in the setting sun and the object was still in bright sunlight. It didn't zip across the sky; it was there before the airplane flew over and it was there for a while after it was gone. It moved in a precise, high arc across the sky.
