September 12 '12 @ 8:29 am EDT - I spotted in the Western Horizon a large bright white elongated oval shaped (capsule) object moving at a good rate of speed - estimated 150 mph and at an altitude of at least 5,000 ft. It was heading in a SW direction and there was no audible sound nor was there a con trail. The sky was absolutely cloudless and because of my location traffic noise was not an issue. I observed the object for approximately 15 seconds and decided to step inside my front hallway to get a pair of binoculars, within that 5-8 second span, the white object had vanished from the sky.
