What is best described as an elongated off-white irridescent oval object, appeared in the center of the clear sky, going silently to the west. I could make out an apparent dome-like structure on top before it went out of view about 5 seconds later. At arms length 2 inches across. Estimating 60 tangent at 500 feet away at ground level=866 feet high.

((NUFORC Note: One of two sighting reports from same source. We do not understand how anyone would be able to determine distances, altitudes, and angles with the precision implied by this case. PD))
