Location: Dallas, TX
Shape: Cigar
Duration:3 seconds
cigar shape wingless aircraft seen over midday.

It was a bright sunny afternoon with clear blue sky. I saw a low angle large reflected metallic glint in the sky and looked at the glint. Turned out to be a wingless cigar shaped aluminum colored craft moving northerly at about 5000 feet or less in altitude. The sight is very close to a landing path to a local airport and this craft is too high for aircraft in this particular area. As I started to focus on the glint, I realized the craft just went up in the air about 5000 more feet and then third second, it was gone. The craft when it went up in altitude did not move forward to go up, it just went "backward" from me, meaning it just went up in the sky in unbelievable speed with no sound and within 2 seconds, it was gone. It never moved forward another foot from where it was when it was when I first saw it. there was no wings or tail or any marking except it was grey metallic color in a cigar long shape.
