Location: Scottsdale, AZ
Shape: Teardrop
Duration:5 sec
Tear drop (shiny mercury) shaped object flew across sky, about the size of a tennis ball at arms length. Left a thin trail.

It was a clear blue sky with no cloud cover. I observed a shiny liquid mercury like teardrop shaped object in the sky, leaving a small jet stream lasting about 60 seconds. The silver object traveled at a high speed in a southerly direction over the city of Scottsdale. At arms length, it appeared to be the size of a tennis ball. At arms length the jet stream appeared about 6 inches long, straight and thin. There was no sound as it passed in the sky. It looked like a "blob" of the Terminator II from the movie.
