Location: Killeen, TX
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
The bright silver cigar-shaped object came out of a cloud and disappeared in seconds into another cloud and never reappeared.

I was driving my wife to work when suddenly I saw a bright silver cigar-shaped obejct come out of a large puffy cloud and enter a clear area of blue sky. The object's brightness caught my eye and then after six or seven seconds, the object became darker and entered another large cloud, but it never came out through the other side, it simply did not come out. Unfortunately my wife did not see the object in the beginning, but she did not see anything come out either. Now, we live near a military area but this was no helicopter or airplane. Maybe a "weather balloon?"
