White Capsule (pill) shaped object, low altitude, slow speed, no sound

It was 5:30pm CST Sunday. My girlfriend saw something in the sky and I turned to look. It was capsule shaped (like a pill). I thought it may have been a hot air baloon, but there was no cabin,no engine, ailerons, external devices etc. About the size of a bus, white, traveling approx 120-150 mph heading directly north. Altitude approx 1,000' AGL. No engine sound or other, no vapor trails. It was moving in conjunction and just in front (by a couple hours) of a cold front which lasted about a week. I noticed that local residents, including my baby developed cold symptoms for about a week.
