Shape: Cylinder
Duration:35 minutes
cylinder object with five bright lights vertical and horizontal

I saw a bright light which I thought was a star. I grabbed binoculars and looked at it. It was about the height of a low flying airplane. I saw a oblong round cylinder object that had five bright lights(like baseball diamond lights) going down the center of it vertically, then horizontally there was five rows of lights also, but not as bright as the center vertical lights. It had a rod sticking out of the top and also of the bottom of the cylinder. After watching it for awhile, it seemed to moved from west to east and then at 6:35am it went up higho er and then went out of my sight. I am curious to know if it was a sattelite or a UFO. I also have no idea of who you call to report something like this. Maybe you could give me some information. Thank You
