Shimming object in the sky between Popcorn Park Zoo and Garden State Parkway NJ

While driving from Popcorn Park Zoo I was approx, between the streets of Humane Way and Dover Rd Forked River NJ. I was driving at the speed of 45 mph the weather was clear and sunny with one or two very small low clouds in the sky; temperature was approx. 70 degrees. As I was heading east towards the Garden State Parkway what caught my attention was a very bright shimmering light it was far away in the sky and I would say it would be approx. 10:00 angle. I did not hear any sound, I can describe it as a long cigar shaped elongated and it appeared to be hovering. The object was definitely a solid I didnít see anything else on the object except for it was a bright shimmering light. I stared at it for approx. 7 seconds then I blinked my eye and it was gone, I have no idea what direction it took or if it had a direction, there was no trail. I surveyed the sky for the object and it was not seen again. ďIt was a very clear dayĒ On Lacey Rd the road is a two lane road East to West with low trees very much of an open area. I called my husband at that moment to tell him what I have seen. I would have thought that I would seen it an again or even an object if it was a plane or a blimp but it was not seen again.

Now I can tell you that Robert J. Miller Air Park runway is directly across from was I saw the object far east possibly near the Garden State Parkway. I understand that planes airlines reflect the sun light but not like this. This shimmered while I was driving then disappeared. I would like to add that I could not explain the sighting Iím just saying it was definitely strange nothing like I saw before. Where we live we have airlines flying over us to Newark Liberty which I would say the flight pattern and I see airlines all day and yes they reflect the sunlight but not for 7 secís while I was driving and the plane would fly at the least 200 mph or more I would like to know if any one saw something strange also in this area.
