Location: Swiss, MO
Shape: Teardrop
Duration:35 minutes
Four of us saw a long term 30 minute daylight to night comet like object.

My daughter and I were deer hunting and saw a shape like a comet without a long tail directly overhead. As we returned to our truck the ? moved acrossed the sky in a wsw direction. It took the shape 1/2 hour or so to reach a point within a few degrees of some lage trees on the horizon. No noise, clear day-night, no contrail or streamers-tail. It was so weird I told my daughter it looked like a comet and if it was to hit it would be a dinasour killer. When we returned to the truck we showed it to our friends, father daughter and took 15 or so pictures as it moved just above the horizon. When we first saw it the size was about finger length directly above us. Since it was still visable after 30 oe so minutes I believe it was a comet. We went home and checked the net to try and find out what it was, no luck. we transfered the photos to my computer and after zooming up they show an elongated shape like a cigar cloud or comet without much tail. I will send the pictures when I return from Denver on Friday. I wish we had the camer when the ? was overhead, this was strange.
