Thought it was a balloon. The object took off straight up in the air as I approached, then darted North.Walking out in farm corn field, I saw what I thought was a shiny balloon falling.As I continued to walk and watch, I realized it was not a balloon. It was much too shiny for a balloon.Cylinder like, approx 4.5 feet long and 1-1.5 feet in dia.No sound, just shiny.The Object came down slowly. I was about 25 feet away. I continued to walk, as I was going to get my dog out of the fence row. As I approached, the object darted straight up in the air, almost to the clouds. (the clouds were a little lower than usual on that day).The object then took off extremely fast in the northern direction and was out of my sight in 3-4 seconds.Amazing, I don’t think it was a balloon and no wind could have carried an object like that as quickly as it vanished and as straight up as it went.It’s almost like it didn’t know I was there, spotted me and took off.Thanks for your site.
