Lake Havasu - 1968 - silent cigar shaped chrome object hanging right in front of me, disappeared in an instant

It was a hot day and a clear blue sky. I had just shot up a 3 stage model rocket with a lizard payload and was walking thru the desert trying to recover it. I saw a flash of light come from behind me. When I turned around, there was a chrome cigar shaped object with no lights or markings just hanging there right in front of me. It was shaped kind of like a tiny 2 man submarine. It was totally silent. I stared at it for about 10 seconds thinking maybe it was a baloon. Then it dipped to one side (north) and disappeared in an instant. It was too close to be an illusion. I remember saying to myself "that was not of this earth!". I didnt tell anyone or even remember this until the late 90's. Now I remember it very clearly. Havent had anything like that happen ever again.
