Visual observance of an object high in a clear sky that appeared to ascend and disappear.

At Approximately 12:00 PM Thursday March 5, 2009 I was looking into the upper skies slightly toward the north. I spotted a white colored object, as I peered through my Arnette polarized sunglasses. The object was between the 10 and 2 o’clock position.

The object appeared to be about the size of a bright planet at night. The shape was similar to a large jet. The object was moving in an easterly direction at a relatively low rate of speed. The object turned to the northeast and appeared to be ascending when it quickly disappeared. There was no contrail and no sound from where I stood. The elapsed time was approximately ten seconds.
