Sky was clear with the exception of a few clouds. A large silver/white cigar shaped craft moved from behind one of the clouds. No sound, no wings, no tail, no contrail, nothing hanging down bottom of craft.

I was sitting on my porch looking up at the sky. The sky was clear and sunny with the exception of a few clouds. As I was looking at one of the clouds a craft moved slowly from behind it. My first thought was 'What the heck is that?' It was a large white/silvery color and rather radiated very bright white reflextion/light. I did not see wings, a tail, anything hanging from the bottom of the craft, no blinking lights. The craft left no contrail and made no sound. It was cigar shaped and about the size of three Goodyear Blimps end to end. I watched it move across the sky at a steady rate of speed until I could no longer see it because of trees in the next door neighbor's yard. I am a graghic artist and know how to 'look' at an object. I have never seen anything like this before. Two weeks later my roommate and I were out in the back yard working in the folwer bed and I sat down to rest...looked up and saw another craft just like the one I reported above only smaller in size. I called to my roommate and pointed to the craft. We both watched it travel across the sky. Both craft came from the same direction.
