I am a 34 year man, professional engineer. Christian. Drug and alcohol free. Married with 1 child and 1 on the way. I am open minded to paranormal phenomenon.

I was out walking with my daughter in an open farming field. It was about an hour before sundown. Few clouds. Visibility was excellent. I observed an object traveling across the sky from zenith to about 30 degrees above the horizon, at which point it faded from sight. It was moving generally to the Northwest. It made the trip in about 20 seconds. I could not discern altitude. There were no contrails nor was any sound discernible. The object was a dull white color. There was no glint or shine from reflected sunlight. It was the size of a pea held at arm's length at its largest. There were no details or protrusions from the object. Its bearing and speed were constant.

I observe the sky regularly. I have no clue what this was.
