Background.Degreed Electrical Engineer,Jet fighter naintenance experence in the US Airforce. Bird watcher with over 170 birds identified in the field. Also amature astronamer; with over 100 hrs. at the eyepiece.
What I Saw: Was using my new binoculars to watch airplanes. I was following one plane that was leaving a normal contrail. And this sounds odd; I just stopped and the plane flew out of the field of view.I was just looking at the contrail and I didn't know why. Then I thought maybe I had seen something in my Perifial Vision. I start to search.I moved the line of sight up maybe 3-5 Deg. Bingo! A round perfect disk made of cloud but the edges were sharp;it wasn't a cloud.I blinked it was gone. If it wasn't so odd;I'd think it was trying to camoflauge itself.
