|Was observing another aircraft when I saw this object, making no sound, travel in a straight line from west to east an go out of sight.
Object Description - White to Silver, shaped like a seed of rice, traveling a direct path from almost due west to due east. Sighting - At approx. 1700 hrs mountain time, I observed the above described object traveling at what appeared to be a very high altitude. I detected no sound as it traveled across an approx. 105 degree arc in a straight line. From Straight up, it was approx. 10 degrees to the south. I observed the object through the arc over a period of approx. 10 to 15 seconds until it went out of sight. From my location I first saw the object at approx. 45 degrees to the west and lost sight of it at approx. 60 degrees to the east. Background - I am a 29 yr. retired police officer presently operating a private investigative agency.
