|Silver, spherical object flying at a high rate of speed with no sound over Georgetown, Texas.
I was standing on my back porch about 4:30 pm, and spotted a UFO flying over my house, from South to North, at an extremely high rate of speed. I estimate the altitude to be between 2000 and 3000 feet. I saw what looked like a burst of smoke or a short contrail twice from the rear and once from the front, all of which quickly disappeared.
The object was spherical in shape, appeared to be silver in color and made no sound. It never changed course and I lost sight of it over my roof after about 10 seconds.
I am a retired Army aviator, and the object did not look like a conventional aircraft of any kind. I thought it might be a drone, but not like one that I have ever seen.
