|Bizarre, shiny, cylindrical object that moved intelligently for 15 minutes in broad daylight (St. Louis).
While driving with my wife to the store she noticed something in the sky and realized it was oddly shaped (cylindrical) and moving in an intelligent manner. She told me that I should pull over to look at it because she was convinced it was not an ordinary aircraft (no wings, no tail stabilizer, and no navigational lights).
We immediately pulled into a nearby parking lot and got out of the car within a minute of her sighting. We stood by the car and I put my sunglasses on to block out the sun which was near the object and making it hard for me to make out. After doing so I realized everything my wife said was an understatement.
I had never seen a craft move so oddly (against the wind, stopping, moving again and then finally moving up through the upper clouds and disappearing completely.
I stared at this vehicle which to me looked like a metallic object but somewhat shaded due to the Sun. There was absolutely nothing sticking out of this object which made it appear eerily saucer-like and the way it moved made it very convincing. Also the object made no sound.
Personally I am convinced that this U.F.O. was either a classified military vehicle or of unknown origin. Please take note of the sketches I made that same day when I returned home while the observation was fresh in my mind.
