Tan object over golf course

I was playing golf on the twelth hole at Franconia Golf course when a jet airliner brought my attention to a tan object in the southern sky. As I waited for the jet to fly near the object I noticed that the jet, approximately five to six thousand feet in alltitude, was nowhere near the object. The object seemed miles higher. As we watched the object for several minutes, we questioned what we were looking at and all had the same observation.The craft tipped sideways several times and revealed a oblong saucer shape. One time as we watched, it tipped forward. There also seemed to be a haze of some sort around the object. Only one conflicting observation among the three was made,one of us thought there was a shine to the object. The only thing odd about the object was it just didn't belong there. There was no fear or excitement,no noize of any kind. The sky was perfectly clear not a trace of a cloud. This was not a ballon of any kind,no hellicoptor or plane or planet. We all had plenty of time to watch this object which stood rather still most of the time. It acted like it was watching something.
