Shape: Circle
Duration:2 minutes
Circular white object moving from north to south silently, at a high rate of speed.

My wife and I spotted a circular shaped bright white object moving at a rapid rate of speed from north to south. It was underneath a thunderstorm cloud so it showed up very clearly. It was not high enough to be a jet and it made no noise. I am an instrument rated private pilot and am very familiar with common aircraft. This was not a helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft and was moving too fast to have been a ballon.
