Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 1 minute
Cylinder shaped object moving east appearing behind jet contrails, reflecting daylight inconsistently.

What appeared to be a cylinder shaped object moving in a easterly direction appeared in broad daylight. It was very high in the sky and was the size of a ball point pen tip held at arms length. I normally would have passed this off as a plane, but I had exactly that to compare it to in the sky. The object passed behind the contrail of a jet airplane moving in the opposite direction, but left no contrail of it's own. Also, the object seemed to reflect the sun's rays inconsistently, and was not constantly illuminated by the sun as the airplane moving in the opposite direction. The thought passed through my mind that it may be a satellite, but I have never seen such from the ground with no visual aid. Lastly, I detected no characteristics of the object from the list below. (Is that odd?)
