Extremely fast bullet shaped craft moving E-W no sound. Veteran observer.First off I have never reported a unidentified object. I am 51 and been in aviation all my life. Pilot both fixed wing/heli. 35+ yrs in rc aircraft and quadcopters for the last 10. Bottom line is I have seen most every type of aircraft, civilian, military and remote controlled craft.Object was moving extremely fast E to W. The refection of the sun is what got my attention. Sky conditions are severe clear,bright sun. Object appeared shiny and possible pointed in the front. Overall the classic bullet shape. No wings or tail seen. Size and altitude are hard to judge but my estimate is either it was 5 thousand agl and the size of a fighter or fl 300 and airline sized. The speed either way was very fast. No sound. None. Had it been a fighter at that speed it would be Mach 1 + easily. Tracked E- W until going out of view. Hard to judge distance but best est is less than 5 miles away. Again its alt and distance depends apon the size of the craft, which I cannot verify.
