Shape: Cigar | Duration: 00:02:15
Source:

Sitting at table, noticed bright object against blue sky moving very slowly, in the north west, probably moving west. size of aspirin at arm's length. quickly got 7x35 binoculars and observed extremely bright oblong shape, airplane like, with two bumps at each end. assumed it to be a plane but the motion was extremely slow. no visible wings, no contrail, no sound, no rotors. no discernible markings anywhere. no running lights. no blinking lights. though perhaps it was an old huey helicopter with the rotors at each end, but the shape wasn't quite right and there was no evidence rotors were at work. object probably lit by rising sun, highly reflective. moved as slow as a helicopter but no ground thumping roar. we have military helicopters flying around here frequently and their noise footprint is always loud and rumbling, unmistakable. object moved slowly to the east as i observed it first in clear sky, then moving behind trees, they clearly visible. it turned north heading just east of medina city and accelerated at a rapid pace, during which the shape changed to a flat "u" shape. i watched as it went out of sight over roof tops. at no time were any wings visible. it seemed to have a tail but nothing like i have seen before, rather organic in appearance rather than the angular shape of a plane's stabilizer. the view through binoculars was very clear. no thought to video it for some reason.
