|Object was Metalic shinning silver saucer shaped with arch hanging down on the left and right side. Me and my wife observed for about 2 minutes, the object was well above the clouds. The rotated so that the arch was now lined up and it looked like a saucer with a bump down the center. The oject began to move east ward at first slow and then picked up speed. It was out of sight in about 5-6 Seconds
The object glowed when it picked up speed because I noticed when it went past the clouds about 10 miles ahead of us I saw the light flicker through the clouds giving away its position. I would say the object was well over 70-80 Thousand feet due to the amount of flutter of light that was seen. It wasn't easy getting the exact shape due to this affect but me and my wife keep trying to catch the exact objects shape. The amount of speed and distance it traveled was amazing.
