Long silver colored cylindrical shaped craft seen over Branford, CT

The time of my sighting was approximately 17:40 hours EST on 3/14/2013 in Branford CT.

I was standing at my front door which faces east towards the Thimble Islands. By chance I was looking out from the doorway when I spotted a long silver colored cylindrical shaped craft which was traveling south to north. At first it was in the open air and then entered into a cloud bank. I ran in the house and grabbed my video camera and went back outside to get a better look. I focused on the craft which by now had emerged from the clouds.

What I witnessed was a long cylindrical craft with no markings, wings or a tail fin. I ran back into the house agin calling to Barbie Heid to come outside to see it. It was at this point that the craft changed its direction to a westerly heading. I tried to film it through the trees but the trees blocked my viewing partially. I was fortunate enough to catch a few seconds of video footage of the craft which I would be glad to send you.

I have to say with all honesty that the length of the craft was approximately the width of the sun from my viewing point in respect to its height, which was at cloud level.
