Occurred : 8/15/2006 19:30 (Entered as : 081506 19:30)
Reported: 8/16/2006 12:26:31 AM 00:26
Posted: 10/30/2006
Location: Fredericton (Canada), NB
Shape: Cigar
Duration:10 seconds
Metal like object, size of plane, no jet stream, no wings, no tail, not moving at a great pace. Disappeared within seconds

Object was observed in sky, estimated to be close to the average flight of passenger aircraft but there was no jet stream behind it. It was above and behind a large thunder storm. Could see the glare of metal from the sun but no signs of wings or a tail, somewhat cigar shaped, didn't seem to be moving at a great pace. I momentarily stuck my head in the door of the house to tell my friend to come and look at this object, he came out and it was gone. Given the view, which was unlimited, there was no way that it could have disappeared that quick as the time delay was roughly 10 seconds or better. Perhaps it was a satellite close to the hemisphere. It was not a plane and it just disappeared. No noise noted.
