Location: Houston, TX
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:2 - 3 minutes
Object had no wings or tail and made no sound. It appeared cylindrical and at times disc like. We saw it in daylight in a clear sky

I went outside with my daughter to take her roller skating. We turned the corner of the building and right away I saw this object in the sky. It was silver and was reflecting the sunlight. As soon as I saw it I was sure it was not a airliner - it had no wings or tail. It was traveling at a slow steady speed in a straight line traveling basically from North to South. I called my neighbor out and we watched it for a good three minutes. It would at times appear to me as a disc or a saucer and at other times it looked like a cylinder. There was no sound. Nothing. It continued on it's way at the same speed on the same course across the sky until it went out of sight. It was flying a little higher than the level of commercial aircraft in our area but it was clearly not high altitude. It wasn't an incredible experience but I would like to know how something like that could fly without wings or a tail. Or Sound. Oh and one last thing there was no wind and it was traveling to fast to be a balloon.
