I was on an airplane flight from USA to Melbourne, Australia. The sun was rising behind us, and it's the early morning hours. About an hour away from Australia, I'm looking out of the window, and off in the distance, I see a metallic glint. Curious as to what it could be so far up in the sky, I keep watching. at this point in time, the object appeared to be parallel to the plane and going slower than the plane or perhaps stationary. As I'm watching, it sharply turns towards the plane and speeds up. I'm panicked because I think that it's a missile or something that's going to hit the plane. It appeared to be heading directly towards me. as it gets closer, I see that it's going to go underneath the plane and not on a collision course. After the panic of potentially dying wears off, I'm oddly calm and entranced. The object is metallic, silvery with no apparent windows, and quite a bit larger than I had thought. It's cigar or oval-shaped, with no wings or tail. ! It passes underneath the plane, right below my window. It was strange in that it seemed to know that I had noticed it. Afterward, I'm relieved and in a haze about what had happened.
