|Silent wingless silver tube.
The day after Christmas 03 my friend and I stepped out onto my Parents back steps on our way back home.
We looked up and saw a silver wingless tube floating silently. It was maybe only 1000-2000 feet up so that we could clearly see that it was not a blimp,airplane or helicopter. I remember thinking it looked like one of the train cars that transports chemicals.
We got in the truck and followed it for a few minutes. It then released a puff of smoke from the center of itself and vanished.We noticed a military plane fly right through the puff of smoke it had left behind.
I have never seen anything like that before. Something big is boiling!
((NUFORC Note: We assume the sighting occurred during daylight hours. We have amended the time above. PD))
