Daytime sighting in Phx Az of round whte object goint East for three minuets by 2 witness. No wind no sound.

At 14:56 two witness were out getting groceries out of car. Looked up East from our back alley (live in Condo) observed very bright white round object high in blue sky going very fast in Easterly direction toward moon which was also visible. They said it passed in front of moon and dissapeared behind the trees. Clear day, no wind, no sound,flying faster than plane or other flying known object would travel and still be visible. We live 1 block sourth of 47th Ave and Thomas. The witness are a 16yr old female and a grandmother. No drinking, or drugs in background. A good student at high school and the Grandmother is well educated and very able to tell the difference between flying objects having lived through the WWII and being an observer of aircraft relating to that period. We live in a frequent flight path of Airplanes going to and from Sky Harbor International Airport. This was not a known plane of any type that we are aware of. Student did state that it was so brilliantly white that she thought it was a piece of paper blowing swifly by the wind. Grandmoter looked and said no it was going to straight and sure to be blown. They believe that it was a disk or soemthing round like that, that flew swiftly out of sight going East. Also there was no wind at ground level that could account for this. Grandmother did state that she thought it was pretty high up in the sky.
