BRIGHT silver rod with dimensions of 6 inch ruler. Estimate that it was very high, and at that altitude was traveling very fast across sky. Observed it climbing from half way up the horizon at about a 30 degree angle until it disappeared. This is the second time I have observed something like this in the same location of the sky. I couldn't discern wings or tail rudders.

Clear blue sky, middle of the afternoon. One object, one witness. I am a Lutheran seminarian and a hospice chaplain. I formerly served as an instructor in two undergraduate liberal arts colleges. Am NOT a scientist or technician of any sort. And I admit I have lousy eyesight. Nevertheless, I believe I can tell an airplane from something else, and I believe this was something else. BRIGHT silver slender rectangle with dimensions of 6 inch ruler. No contrail. Estimate that it was very high, and at that altitude was traveling very fast across sky. Observed it climbing from half way up the horizon at about a 30 degree angle until it disappeared. This is the second time I have observed something like this in the same location of the sky. I couldn't discern wings or tail rudders.
