Sitting on the beach, a man yelled and told people to look at the sky. many observed the craft. Material did not look like metal

The craft moved very quickly through the sky, it looked nothing like an airplane, and moved too quickly to be one. Although it did move quickly, it was easy to see the craft in detail. After about 15 min . of following the craft it was gone. The craft did not come close to land, it remained high in the sky. The craft looked like a disk with three to four poles comming out of the top. It did not look like it was made out of metal, but some other almost cloud like material. The craft was white. I was not able to see the material it was made of easily, as it was high in the sky on a very sunny day. I know more people saw this. The beach was crowded and many people were looking at the craft. I am a student at a nearby university
