Duration:3 t0 4 sec.
Circular object offwhite in color, emiting no sound traveling at supersonic speed.

Standing on my deck, looking to the Northeast when I notiticed at about 45 t0 60 degrees off the horizon a Circular object. At first I thought it was a Plane of some sort but then I noticed it didn't omit any sound. The object passed by so quickly that I estimate that it was maybe 3500 to 4000 feet high. It may have been a lot higher but I'm not really sure about that. The Object was circular, solid in appearance but without any distinct markings. It almost resembled the color of a cloud.( offwhite) The object I feel was going supersonic speed because it was out of sight in no time at all, headed in a Northeast direction. When I first noticed the object, it was about the size of maybe a nickle or a quarter from my perspective. as it traveled to the Northeast, it rapidly decreased in size rapidly until I lost it over the Horizon. There were no clouds in the shy,just a beautiful evening. This is the first time that I ever noticed anything like this and I tell you that I was really taken back in awe about the event. Could it have been a Satilite, I don't know since the sighting was in daylight.
