Duration:2 seconds
Silver flash in clear sky that appeared for 2-3 seconds, then disappeared.

I was driving to work, heading south on Mc Menemy St. from Co. Rd. F. It was a clear day with a few small clouds that were to the far east. I had an open view of the vista ahead and to both sides. I had driven about a quarter mile, when I saw a bright flash in the sky slightly to the west. I did not see the object coming from any direction, it simply appeared, then disappeared, within seconds.

I thought it was an airplane, as it looked like one. It had wings and the nose of object was facing east. It was a solid, bright platinum color. I slowed down to a crawl, expecting it to reappear to east, but it did not. I scanned the sky in all directions and saw nothing more.
