Location: Paducah, KY
Shape: Cigar
Duration:3 minutes
Reflective chrome shiny metallic cylinder shaped thing floating from Paducah off toward the Brookport area.

This happened years ago...forgive me it was 2013-2015 in the summer. I am not for sure the exact month but it was nice out...summer time. I walked out the back door of my work and looked up to the west and saw a completely shiny (shiny chrome) long cylinder or I guess you could say cigar shaped. It was probably 1,500-2,500 feet was clear as day...but not if you didn't have a fix on it...but when I did pick it out in the sky I could see the shape and color perfectly.

It was moving north west above the mall area moving out the direction of Brookport, Illinois...that direction. It just kept moving off that direction.

A coworker was there and I told him look...but he couldn't see it and I didn't want to sound dumb but I have always wondered what that was. I can still remember it clear as day. The coworker looked but could not see it and walked back in. Are our weather balloons shaped that way? It made no sound and had defined cylinder shape.. reflective chrome. I would say it was 20-30 feet long is my guess. Ya see, the wind here blows in a north east direction, wasn't blowing in the was headed northwest.

I am submitting this because I noticed another person saw the exact same thing as me according to what I read of sightings in my town but this person saw it in 2017 years after me but they saw the same thing.
