Silverton, Colorado (United States)

My fiancé and I were camping a few miles west of Silverton Colorado on 10/19/2011. We decided not to make a campfire so we could better enjoy the stars. It was so dark. No light pollution and the half moon was well behind the mountains. We had seen a few shooting stars that night. At approximately 10:30 p.m. I saw something fly directly overhead. I couldn't make out exactly what the object was but it had a wide, short lived contrail. It was moving much slower than a shooting star or a fireball. I've seen large fireballs fall before and this was nothing like that. It was traveling from the N.E. to the S.W. and made no noise. I've been a commercial pilot for over 20 years so I know this wasn't an aircraft. In comparison to the few commercial planes we saw that night, this object was much larger.
