Single adult witness sees a reflective, disc-shaped object fly below high-altitude contrails.

Report/description: Noticed first at approx 45 degrees above horizon at North-west direction.

Noticed commercial aircraft flying in vicinity. Had a disk shape and seemed to be reflective--it was flashing at close to regular intervals and sun was to my back. I watched its path in the sky for approximately 5 - 10 mins. i noticed it appeared to travel below the con trails from airliner traffic in vacinity.

disked shaped object with no apparent wings. lost ability to track visually when object passed by overhead and traveled away close to sun (combination of object receding from sight and glare of sun preventing me to continue viewing it.) it did not appear to make any sound. viewed from a field within metropolitan atlanta area (georgia tech campus).

Characteristics of Object: There aircraft in vacinity Dorm room phone: (404) ((number deleted)) I have reported this sighting via telephone.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone on two occasions, and he seemed quite credible and serious-minded to us. PD))
