Location: Pasadena, MD
Shape: Cigar
Duration:2 minutes
A long, white cigar shaped object flew across the sky, disappearing a couple of times, then shooting straight up.

My daughter and I were watching about 50 crows in the big tree beside our house, when suddenly, I saw something that looked like a great big pale white cigar. It came out of the eastern sky, flying about as low as an airplane, but it didn't have wings. It did not have a tail, and it was very fat. I ran in to get the video camera, and began taking footage. It looked somewhat smaller, and went behind a cloud, then shot straight up. Some of the video footage shows it kind of flatening out and disappearing, then coming back to the cigar shape. I am 43 years old. My daughter is 8. We are homeschooling Christians who value truth and honesty.
