3FT TRANSLUCENT OBJECT LEAVES 10 FT CONTRAIL

WAS WORKING SAW FLASH OF LIGHT ABOUT 150 YARDS AWAY ALONG A TREE LINE AND CORN FIELD.

I KEEP BINOS IN MY TRUCK TO VIEW DEER. I WATCHED OBJECT ABOUT 3 FT LONG MAKING CIRCLES UNDER TREE LINE . i THOUGHT MAYBE AN OPTICAL ILLUSION WITH THE BINOS, HEAT, AND SUNLIGHT. THE MOST INTERESTING PART WAS THE CONTRAIL IT LEFT BEHIND. I COULD SEE HOW I COULD MAYBE SEE A REFLECTION IN THE BINOS, BUT THIS CONTRAIL WAS ABOUT 10-12 FEET LONG, I COULD SEE IT DISAPATE. THE OBJECT WAS A TRANSLUCENT WHITE AND BLUE.

I WALKED OVER TO AREA AFTER IT WAS GONE, FOUND THIS LONG STRINGY COTTONY SUBSTANCE.
