Long white cigar shaped object seen over McMinnville Oregon heading south

In the late afternoon of October 30, 2000 I observed a white cigar shaped craft overhead in McMinnville Oregon.It was low enough to observe no wings,no vapor trail and was slightly narrowed in the center of its length.It was traveling north to south and the speed was the same as that of a jet,but was low enough that if it had wings would have been plainly seen.I live in Aurora Oregon, but visit my girlfriend in McMinnville and I was outside smoking as I always do since she doesnt like cigarette smoke Note:I did not write down the exact time but was around 16:00-17:00
