Occurred : 4/8/2016 17:00 (Entered as : 4-8-16 17:00)
Reported: 4/8/2016 7:54:18 PM 19:54
Posted: 4/15/2016
Location: Red Cross, NC
Shape: Cigar
Duration:60 seconds
I saw a thin white cigar shape (no wings visible) in color moving slowy and quietly from north to south passsing between clouds.

I walked outside at 1700 on April 8, 2016. It was a sunny day with large bulky clouds and 70 degrees. Saw two buzzards circling and looked above them and noticed a thin white cigar shape quietly moving slowly between clouds.

The direction was from north to south and lasted about 60 seconds before I lost visibility.

Very strange because no sound was heard and no wings were seen. Usually a silver or metallic appearance is visible from a plane that low and wings should have been seen. If a pencil is held at arm's length, the eraser would provide an example of the size (width) of the shape seen this day.
