Location: Lynchburg, VA
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 3 minutes
White cigar shaped object was stationary in the sky and then it was simply no longer there.

I was driving on route 460 by the city of Lynchburg (by Liberty University) and witnessed a cigar shaped object in a stationary posistion west of the city for about 3 minutes time. The sky was totally clear (blue skies) with visibility at least 30 miles as I could clearly see the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background. The object seemed to be around 10 thousand feet in the air. The object was white but seemed to glimmer a silver color. The sun was low in the sky in the east and the object seemed to be reflecting the sun, much like a mirror does. The object really struck me becuase it was not moving at all, there were no markings, lights, or other things that made the object look like a plane. I lost sight of the object (sky) for about 15 seconds as my car passed a row of trees. After passing the row of trees the object was gone. I have never seen anything like that.
