White object changing shapes

Report 2 of 2 On Saturday, October 12, 2019, my girlfriend and I were working in the yard at her house. We were working in the yard, and at 6:20 PM, I observed an object that was bright white at about 60 70-degrees elevation to the east of our location. I could tell it had a shape and was not an airplane. It appeared to be hovering. I looked through my binoculars and could see it, still very small. It appeared to be at a very high altitude. It appeared to be a long bright loop, small and nearly closed about 2/3s of the length and an open loop at the other end. It slowly changed shapes to an V shape. About a minute or so later, it changed to a ) shape. A minute or so later, it changed to a straight tube or cigar shape. I took five pictures with my cell phone. You can see the object as a small white dot in the blue sky, but no details. Enlarging the photo, you can see the shape changes. One picture, you can see the V shape.

I called the Irving Police department to report what I was seeing and to see if anyone else was reporting it. I was on the phone with the police department for about 5 minutes, describing what I was still looking at. They took down my information and said they would check it out.

The object was visible for about 10 minutes, slowing moving to the east. Then, at about 45-degree elevation due east, it just disappeared. I called the Irving Police Department back and told them it was no longer visible.
