Shape: Teardrop
Duration:40 sec
I was driving home after work when I was a teardrop silvery and shiny object, (and it was obvious that it was chrome colored) passed across at a 35 degree angle

I was driving home from work and I picked up my brother from brother had been impatiently waiting cus I didnt get off from work till 4:15, and my brother had phoned me telling he missed the bus, so I pick him up and upon driving home I was stopped at a red light turning left.....a silverly chromed teardrop like object passed up in the clear sky probably about 300-400 feet from me overhead. It could have not possbibly been an aircraft of this earth so instead of heading home I took a right and proceeding to follow it. I followed it for about 40 seconds to a minute before it took a path downard and then postioned itself to where the pointed part of the teardrop was facing at a 45 degree angel and just zoomed by a an incredible speed, and then dissapeared. Neeless to say I was amazed and not scared at all. This is my 5 ufo encounter, but first to be put online, and I'm an amateur ufologist, and this really blew my mind away.
