Duration:3-5 min.
It was a silvery bright object traveling east to west over mountains in the city of Tucson.

I wittnessed this object in Tucson in the afternoon facing north.

The object was around 1500-20000' up. It was flying over the Catalina Mountain Range. This is a high aircraft traffic area but I could not identify it as and aircraft or ballon.

The object mut have been several miles away. It was traveling fairly rapid maybe faster than a commercial jet but not too much faster than that.

It appeared to be highly polished or reflective. The very bright silver flash from the object is what first caught my attention.

I (and my wife) that it might have been flying parelel to the ground adjusting it flight patteren every second or so causing the silvery flash.

The directon of travel was east to west. I watched it til I could not see it any more. However my wife said before it disapeared from veiw it shot up then vanished. I have seen flashes from aircraft landing but this flash was diffrently colored than those.

I have worked around aricraft for over 18 years and I could not match this with military or civilian aircraft.

Also It was mostly clear skies and around 65-70 degrees at ground level and I did'nt see a contrail.
