This is a real sighting. Been wanting to always see camera on hand.

My wife and I were sitting on our 2nd floor balcony of our apartment. I was watching an airliner traveling Eastbound on the Easternmost horizon.

An object caught my eye which I first thought was a large very white bird flying Westward from the Eastern horizon.

I noticed that this object was V shaped and there was no wings flapping. The object was traveling fast Westbound. I asked my wife, "do you see that"? She said, "yes, what was that"? The object traveled across the whole sky in maybe 4-5 seconds, maximum. It appeared to be around 5- 10 thousand feet high.

My backgroung is law enforcement, and military advisor, served in Bosnia, Kosovo and Afghanistan.
