Believe I saw the same object again, as reported on July 4th. This time it was travelling East to West directly over Lake Pontchartrain in line with Loyola Blvd. Kenner. It was a lot farther away, and I was wondering if it was a large bird soaring at first, but that question was resolved when it entered the clouds and slowly disappeared.

It was on a trajectory that was increasing in height.....half the speed of an aircraft which is why it came to my attention. Why I thought it was the same as the one I reported on 7-4-17 was that it was pure black against the blue sky, then against the clouds. No shimmer of any sort.

Military....perhaps, but very strange speed.

I'm an amateur astronomer, and very well familiarized with aviation.

I've seen a lot of strange things over the lake, I'm beginning to wonder!
