Bright cigar-shaped object, bright silver and white color flying at backyard fence level, quickly ascended over pine trees

Approximately 16:30, a bright, glowing, cigar-shaped (cylinder/rod-like) object observed from my bathroom window. It was silver and white color traveling east toward my house.

It flew over my fence approximately 8 feet from ground level.

It quickly turned due north over the pine trees and became quickly invisible.

Event duration was only seconds.

I immediately went outside for further observation and there was an ozone-like odor (post-rain shower smell) in the area of the occurrence.
