Pill-shaped, swiftly moving solid object spotted through small telescope

Single dark, pill-shaped (not cylindrical, not cigar) swiftly-moving solid object observed for 15-20 seconds, through small telescope (60X 65mm power).

Length appeared to take up approx. one-half diameter of field of vision through eyepiece; width appeared approx. one-sixth of the object's length; lost sight of object when attempting to see it with the naked eye. Observer is 18-year-old student.
