Black medicine-capsule shaped object, flying horizontally at about dusk.

This sighting was July 28, 2015. I was lying on the sidewalk in front of my house admiring the sunset, which is something I often do. I noticed a black, medicine-capsule shaped object flying overhead from East to West.

At first, I thought that it was just a balloon, but as I watched it, I changed my mind. I have seen many balloons flying, as most people have. All that I have seen go primarily upwards, and also usually move somewhat horizontally. They usually tend to wiggle a bit and wobble as they fly.

This object did not appear to rise upwards at all. It seemed to maintain a completely horizontal movement, and apparently moved in a straight line toward the west. It did not wiggle or wobble at all as a small balloon would. It made no noise at all.

I was able to watch it for a minute or two, until it traveled so far into the distance that I couldn't see it anymore. I wasn’t really sure about the size of it, but I recently saw a helicopter in the sky at about the same location in the sky, and about the same time in the evening. The helicopter appeared to be about the same size as the object I saw, as well as about the same altitude, and seemed to move at about the same speed.

The thing that I saw was certainly not a helicopter, as it clearly capsule-shaped, as I mentioned, and made not noise at all.

I saw something similar about two weeks earlier, that was moving the opposite direction, from West to East, at about the same time of evening. I ran into the house to get binoculars, but it was gone when I returned.
