White cigar-shaped object flew straight into mountains and between peaks without stopping

While traveling north on State Highway 90 between Huachuca City and Benson, I observed a white cigar-shaped object (which I estimated to be about the size of a small aircraft) travel in a staight line east to west across the desert near Kartchner Caverns State Park. It was moving at a high rate of speed, and rather low in altitude, and in fact flew right between the peaks of the Whetstone Mountains without changing course or altering its trajectory in any way. It just seemed very odd to me.
