Location: Grand Rapids, MI
Shape: Cigar
Duration:5 minutes
Standing in the front yard, 4 of us watched a silver cigar shaped craft move slowly across the sky and suddenly pick up speed andvanish

2 of my children, myself and my neighbor were looking north at the sky and noticed a cigar-shaped, shiny object that appeared to be very high up (about where an airplane would fly). It seemed to move very slowly and left no smoke trail behind it. I also seemed to be moving sideways. Then it suddenly picked up speed and disappeared in a flash.

I have never seen anything like this before and I have no background having anything to do with UFOs.
