weird thing in texas

I was outside in my front yard stargazing as I often do. It was a very clear night southerly breeze. Looking up I saw a rod shaped object it was white, about 4 foot long and 6 inchs around. It was apprx. 15 foot over my head. It barely cleared the roof of my house.It was moving from north to south opposit the wind.I'm a very scientific minded person.This the second time in last few months I have seen unusual things.I guess fact is stranger than fiction. The [thing] made no sound and had no lights it was just very bright white and perectly formed.p.s. I'm an amature astronomer.
