Summary : A long, finger-shaped, metal object hovered over the creek behind my house for several minutes.

After my friend ((Name deleted)) and I finished watching a rerun of Seinfeld, we went outside for a smoke. When we got outside, Gene pointed to a large object in the sky which hovered several yards above the trees in the creek behind my house. It was about 300 feet long and was rounded at each end, sort of like a cigar or finger. We just watched it for 2 or three minutes, and then it rose silently up a few feet and flew away almost instantaneously. I have a bachelor's degree in teaching, specializing in modern American History.
