Duration:less than a min.
a silvery object was moving across the clear blue sky at a slow speed.

I was camping out with a friend of mine at Whiskey Lake in the Chuska Mountains in NW New Mexico on Sat., July 05th, 2003. At approximately 10:30 that morning, I returned to our camp after doing some early morning fishing when I noticed a silvery object in the sky at 10 o'clock high just SE of the lake The distance was 4-5 miles away and was traveling slowly towards the west. I immediately grab my 8 power hunting binoculars and looked at the object. I noticed that the object was metallic, silver and shaped like a cigar. The object passed behind a ponderosa tree and I stepped out to the other side of the tree. I could not find the object afterwards. The sighting was less than a minute, maybe 30 thirty seconds. That day, it was a nice clear blue sky. My friend didn't see it due to the fact she was making a late breakfast and she heard me say to her "what is that?" This object still puzzles me.
