object observed to the east of the city of Anchorage.

Object was reported observed over or beyond the Mountains to the East of the city. Cool morning, approximately 11° F at ground level, clear morning sky, light breeze.

Object appeared vertical at first, the horizontal and proceeded to travel to the south at a rather fast pace. No reports of sounds or booms, and unable to determine distance, other than sight of the object was lost as the mountains blocked the view briefly behind the peeks.

The object was bright as it was back lit by the sun, and the western face of the mountains was still shadowed. There was a trailing plume that was visible and changed slightly in form the trailing edge did not linger and closer to the tip remained constant; however, the leading edge appeared sharp and constant.
