Shape: Unknown
Duration:4-5 minutes
Shiny object tumbling across the sky.

I was walking my dog and a shimmer caught my eye above me. When I looked up directly in front of me at @ 45 degrees, I first thought it was a birthday balloon. I quickly realized it was much much larger.

I had on a very good pair of sunglasses and had a clear unobstructed view. The object appeared to be tumbling and moving from south to north. It reflected the sun intensely and intermittently.

I observed the object for about 4 minutes until it vanished.

I would estimate its size to that of a car. Altitude approximately 8-9000 ft. The object made no audible sound.
