|I was taking a break and laying on the sidewalk in front of our office looking straight up into the sky. The weather was clear, visibility unlimited. A friend was with me. A balloon had floated by us going north. Something caught my eye slightly to my south.
It was cigar shaped, very dark color, silent, & no vapor trail. The size was about ½ inch between my fingers at arms length. I have no way to estimate actual size and altitude. There were two civilian jets in the sky at high altitude in the area.
It traveled on a straight trajectory and covered maybe 10 degrees of arc in 10 or 15 seconds, heading due east. Then it vanished as we were observing it, literally. It was almost directly overhead, slightly to the south of my position.
