The object was flying at a very high speed(probably 3000 miles per hour) without making any sound.

On july 26 1998,6:25PM(Sunday),in the backyard of my house,my brother observed a flying object in the sky.I went into the house immediately to get the videocamera. In about 25 sec.I came back with the videocamera and the binoculars.When we first saw the object at (90 degrees), it was round like a ball,and the color was white.My brother looked through the binoculars(20*50) and saw the object a little bigger but the shape did not change too much.When I started videotapping,the object was at 45 degrees flying SE,I zoomed in 72 times with a 8 mm videocamera and the object looked totaly different.It looked like a cylinder,the front and the back were black and the midlle was white like a neon light.The light seemed to be comming from inside of the object.There was no sound at all.The object was probably flying 3000 miles per hour.I videotaped the object for 30 sec. and then it disappeared in the clouds.The witnesses were: Me,my wife,my doughter,my brother and his wife.I attach 2 photos of the object.
