Shape: Egg
Duration:30-40 secs
Large egg shaped object motionless in sky

I was driving down the 43rd street extension to go food shopping when I saw a very large,dark, egg shaped (eliptical) object with a shiny spot on each side (lights?). It was not moving at all, not high like an airplane, not a helicopter, not microwave dish. I was trying to make sense of it because it didn't move. After 30-40 seconds, I rounded a curve with trees which blocked my view and when I passed the curve the object was gone- no where to be seen. This frightened me very much and I called 911 to see if anyone else had seen this. I gave my name and cell phone number. About 45 minutes later my two children started yelling that there was a rainbow. I looked out the car window and to the left of the sun (quite a way) there was a light shining in the sky with a vertical rainbow in front of it. I don't know if this had anything to do with the other object I saw.
