Dark cylinder with shadowy wing halo......

Me and my friend were sitting on our deck at our home. We both were sitting on chairs looking up at the stars. It was partly cloudy outside. I was tilting my head back looking at the sky when I saw a dark cylinder object sweep across the sky passing straight above me coming from the East. angling off to the NorthWest. It was not brightly aluminated at all.A pail orangish color in spots.....if anything.... In fact if I had not been looking at the star, I may not have noticed it. It was more shadow than lit up but, I could see enough too see that it was a cylinder. It passsed through a thint transperant layer of broken up clouds. My guess is that the clouds helped illuminate it for me to see. It was so large in the sky, I jumped up and and said, "My god" .....My friend was not able to find it with his eyes. Believe me, I don't see how anyone could miss it! But I guess it was not meant to be noticed, Even though it was so large. It seemed to cast a feathery blurr when it angled off towards the north. It almost looked like a dark wing, with the cylinder in the middle. If you held your arm out straight up to the sky,, and made a space of about two and a half inches between your index figer and your thumb, that's how big it would have appeard in the sky. It made no noise, no sound at all. It was very exciting!! That's the best I can tell you right now. Thank you for your time......
