7-3-03 A Soundless Vaporless Silver Cylinder Object Flyies East To West In The Suburbs Of Syracuse New York.

I was facing south and I first spotted an unusual flying object about SSW to SW. From my location the object looked like a silver cigar tube. I was trying to find the wings or a tail section and neither was visible, if they existed. The object was in site for about 10 seconds and it did not make a sound. Furthermore, there was no vapor trail. It was traveling east to west, but not traveling toward the setting sun: rather it had the sun about 15 degrees off its right side.
