Location: Coralville, IA
Shape: Oval
Duration:5 minutes
Single hovering oval object in clear blue sky along with 2 commercial jets leaving exhaust trails.

Shortly after 9am I had noticed an oval object appearing to hover in the sky. The sky was perfectly blue. There were two noticable commercial jets with exhaust trails within eye view of the oval object. One could easily see wings off the commercial jets at the altitude they were flying. The oval object appeared to be flying at a lower altitude, but there were no noticable protrusions from its smooth appearance. When movement was noticed this crafts ability to cruise across the skyline appeared to be much faster than what the commercial jets were doing.
