Reported: 2/1/2002 7:44:05 PM 19:44

Location: Ithaca, NY
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:3 minutes
Cylinder crosses sky without any vapor trail.

We were walking in a park and watched a cylindrical shaped object, thus (oooovoooo), with a darker patch in the center, cross the sky without any vapor trail whatsoever. Every jet or aircraft I have ever seen has always had at least some kind of exhaust trail. This had absolutely none. It was a very clear day here, and the craft seemed very high, but was large enough to still be clearly visible in shape. At no time were wings seen at all.
