Reported: 11/7/2004 4:09:26 PM 16:09
Posted: 11/9/2004
Location: Minneapolis, MN
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:6 TO 10 SECS.
Silver cylindrical object; no wings; no vapor trail; no sound passing SE to NW just before sundown.

Before sunset; straight-line flight from SE to NW; silver; may have had reddish color at the leading end; no visible wings; no vapor trail; no discernable sound. It passed beneath the dispersed contrail of a jet, but appeared to be at some altitude(maybe 20,000 feet?). Object was 5 or 6 times longer than wide and blunt at each end. The rate of passage from my perspective was similar to a jet airplane, but the impression was that it was not being propelled so much as gliding. It was first spotted by my 5-year old grandson, who asked what it was. I looked up expecting to see an airplane.
