Shape: Cigar
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
I was outside, using my ab chair, when I saw it. It was white, cigar shaped, silent and seemed to glow. I looked at it for maybe 30 seconds and decided it could probably be a blimp, but I ran inside to get my camera anyway. It took no longer that 20 seconds to get back out with my camera and it was gone. I spent several minutes looking for it, because I thought it couldn't have gone that far, but I never saw it again. Just as I was going back inside two helicopters from Kirtland AFB took off in the direction it had been going. I also noticed some very high jets flying in that direction. I have no clue what it was, but I watch planes fly over all day and it wasn't a plane, it was also too damn big to be a bird. It could have been a dirigible, but if so it was a very fast moving one.
