Location: Norfolk, VA
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:5 minutes
Cylindrical object spotted in Norfolk.

I was in my backyard with my 2 year old son around sunset, and we were looking at the moon, when we noticed in the sky at high altitude in close proximity to the moon (about 4 o'clock) a cylindrical type object with long panels extending the length of both sides of it that appeared to be hovering in the sky.

At first I thought it was a plane but I observed no contrails and then thought that maybe it was a satelite or the ISS, however after about 5 minutes, it vanished from view.

There were no clouds in the sky and the object did not move from its location, it literally just vanished.
