White Cigar Shaped Craft seen over Waterloo, Iowa

On August 5th, 2006 I have seen a "White Cigar shaped craft" in Waterloo, Iowa. It was over the street in front of my sisters House and over houses in the residential area. When I first spotted it…it gave a bright White Light. So bright it almost was blinding as I was sitting in the Hot Tub. My Friend’s Birthday was that day and she was there to also witness it after I pointed it out to her. After 30 seconds or so we seen this Long Rounded at both ends no wings no Tail, no Chemtrail (Smoke) that I could see, and no Wire or antennas plus just real "LONG!" I didn’t see any writing of any sort. It seemed to be moving slow or just gliding through the air, but at that size and bulk it could have been going much faster. It seemed to be solid and a bit metallic white.

There was also no noise that it made. This Cigar shaped craft was flying really low. It was 70-85 feet in the air just over the tops of the tallest trees The Tallest trees being 45-50 feet tall. It was a sight no one would forget. I watched this craft for 4 and half minutes! Watching it with my friend. It was around 5:40 pm.. There were only a few clouds, and when it reached a cloud as I watched it go behind the cloud, and waiting for it to reappear it just was gone. No it wasn’t a plane or a Blimp, Weather balloon, or swamp gas. Any more information would be wonderful. Thank you.

I have also seen this craft before with my sister but she refuses to get involved. Hope this helps.
