Location: Marquette, MI
Shape: Oval
Duration:20 seconds
High altitude, high speed object traveled across the sky before dissapearing behind a cloud.

I in the parking lot of the local laundry mat looking up at the sky because it was a nice day and I was waiting for my wash. I noticed an object that I thought at first was a seagul. I watched it further and realized that it was probably at a very high altitude, but it was moving pretty fast for that height. For instance an airliner moves fairly slowly across the arc of the sky, this was on the order of three to four times as fast. I also thought it might have been a baloon, but the shape wasn't quite right. It was traveling in a south to southwestern direction coming in from over Lake Superior. The object eventually passed behind a cloud, and I lost sight of it. It did appear to change direction but not significantly. Pretty unclonclusive but still I thought I would send in data in case someone else got another look at it, and it turned out to be more significant.
