Location: Lehigh Acres, FL
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:5 min
Bright metalic object flying westward Very high in sky.

Watched what looked to be a cylinder shaped object, highly reflective, silver head westward across the sky, had an extremely long "bright white" tail stretching out behind it.. I would say about a foot length behind a pencil point or smaller sized object. It flew very high and very fast. It could possibly be a jet? Couldn't hear any noise, above the many birds in my yard. The tail seemed to evaporate in a shimmer behind it. Not like a contrail that lingers.

Thought it could be the space shuttle, but after checking the website it wasn't due to take off till 2:45pm today. Could be nothing more than a jet? I would love to know one way or another.

Please contact me at my email address if it can be explained or otherwise. Thank you.
