White or Luminous Disk seen

I was coming back from class as I remember that this was the first day of class and it was a hot and clear day with big billowy cumulus clouds and dark blue sky.

I rarely take notice of most things in the sky because usually it is just an airplane or helicopter as there is always so much air traffic in the sky. On this particular day, I was travelling eastbound on Walnut St. in moderate traffic when I just so happened to see a glint in the sky that caught my attention. What I saw, at first, looked like a plane but it seemed to be luminous or was a white color. I would have dismissed it as a plane had it not rolled a couple of times and sped up as I watched it disappear into a big cloud. When it rolled, I could tell there were not any wings or identification on it and it was about the size of an almond held at an arms length. The time that it traversed over the sky, after it sped up, before it went into the cloud was approximately 10-15 seconds, before it sped up, I had noticed it for approximately 5-10 seconds.

After going into the cloud, I had enough time to park but it never came back out of the cloud. I wrote down this experience and called my brother and told him right after it had happened but I hesistated to tell anyone else. The reason I am reporting this is that I feel that this report may be related to the Longview incident logged in on the same day of question.
