The object had no lights. But it was white. It seemed to be reflecting the lights from the streets or it was glowing. It had a light grey coloring. It was moving so fast from south to north. I knew it wasn't a bird or plane because of it's speed. It had the shape of a butter knife.

Background of the observer: 43 year old man. I'm sober. So no alcohol or drugs were involved. I've never reported anything like this.
