TRUCK SIZE CIGAR SHAPE OBJECT OVER THE BLUE ROUT 476 in the SUBERBS OF PHILADELPHIA

At 11:47 AM I was driving to work and directly ahead of me, a half of a mile or so, I saw an object that resembled a cigar shape, quickly, zooming over the highway, until I couldn't see it anymore, over the trees it disappeared. The craft looked as though it was not that large, meaning, the size of a truck. It seemed to refect the sky on the top, and more dark on the bottom half. It was not high at all, as far as my view, a half mile ahead, it looked like it was maybe a hundred feet over the highway. If I were to hold out my arm and clench my fist, the object would be about half the size of my fist. No one else, as far as I could see, saw the object. But, because I love looking into the sky, (FOR UFO'S) I am more alert to the stranger objects then most people. This was not a plane, not a bird, not a helecopter. The object kind of teetered back and forth as it went pass. Almost out of control. I have seen ufo's many times, this was the second time that a UFO was within a hundred feet from the ground. The other time was last year about the same time period, but I did not report that. I am writing to see if you got anymore reports posted.
