UFO making weird descent at a weird angle I've never seen before and I've seen all kinds of craft overhead for 30+ years, military/non.

Hi, I am not a big UFO type person who believes in UFO's.

I was laying out in my backyard, just a few minutes ago. I was staring at the clouds and watching a few sets join together over a 30 minute period. It's windy here.

All of a sudden, a bright white, thin object appears between them, descending at an angle I've never seen above me in these skies and I've been here for 30+ years.

There is an airplaine route above since I was a kid, this plane was NOT on the same flight pattern and it was diving in such a weird angle, I HONESTLY thought it was a plane "going down" or a space shuttle craft descending at a weird long angle.

Next thing I knew, it disappeared COMPLETLY after it went behind A SMALL SET OF CLOUDS.

I backed up enough feet to make sure the craft made it out of the other side of the cloud. I waited, & waited, & waited. It was gone.

I could probably draw it, and the clouds, because I have a photographic memory which my relatives and friends can back up.

This is NOT like me to write about UFO's. But, I saw one. Not saying it was "Alien," but it was the defined term UFO.
