Location: Smyrna, GA
Shape: Rectangle
Duration: 1min
A very angular dark object in stark contrast against the morning sky

Weather: slight haze but w/blue sky, no wind. While driving east on Cumberland Blvd a black or very dark object, rectangular object appeared in my front about 30 deg up and 15-20 deg. right (south) of the sun. It was not moving horizontally or vertically but definitely was rotating very slowly.

First impression was that it was a strange kite, Next thought, maybe an airborn, floating piece of plastic or paper but there was definitely no wind.

I slowed to a crawl, got a good look and it had very sharp corners and was in sharp contrast against the sky...definitely a rectangle. There was definitely no wobbling or any movement that would indicate that it was teathered or suspended. It was slowly rotating and changing shape or showing a more angular shape.

My last impression was that it was rectangular but with an arrow shaped point on each end of the rectangle. Really cool as grits !
