Duration:15 minutes
observed a white object against a blue sky which did not move or behave like an airplane

The object first appeared to be a jetliner travelling south at a high altitude. Then it moved radically toward the west. It seemed to go either into or behind a cloud where it remained visible and appeared to stop. It then moved from behind the cloud headed west, then turned back to the north which was strange in that thats where it originally came from. For a long time I was able to see the object as a white dot. That was the most notable characteristic , the pure white color. Through binoculars you could sort of make out a swept wing type of design but I cant be sure of that. The object moved in a strange way unlike either a plane or a baloon. There was no contrail. Neither my wife nor I could explain what we had seen.
