Location: Tehachapi, CA
Shape: Disk
Duration:ca 20 seconds
single small disc like a helium balloon but flying overhead straight, steady, silent and fast just after sunset. No wind.

Saw it in western sky about 35 degrees, thought it was a helium party balloon, but noticed it wasn't tumbling, but floating steadily eastward. It passed directly over my head and the building behind me cut off my field of vision as I turned around to watch it. It had no lights, but a whitish oval patch on the belly. There was no wind at ground level. As it passed overhead I was sure it could not be a balloon. It flew straight, silent and steady. It looked as though it was headed in a straight line directly over the town center. I'd be surprised if no one else saw it.

Size: like a dime or nickel held at arm's length. Very clear and well defined.
