Shape: Cylinder
Duration:1 minute
chased by 3 foot silver cylinder in sky.

I went down to my dad's garden on a very bright day which is about 200 feet from his house. I looked up in the sky and probably about 300 feet in the air I saw a silver cylinder shape that looked about the size of a baton falling in my direction.

As fast as I could I headed to the house thinking this might have fallen out of a plane. It started overtaking me as I started zig zagging.

Right before I reached the porch it overtook me and was maybe 15 feet above me and then just disappeared. It was silver and made no noise. 35 years later and this still bothers me. Thought you might have some ideas.

Thank you, ((personal information deleted)) after 1 p.m.
