Shape: Cylinder
Duration:2 minutes
I was at my house and looked up and saw, at a low altitude, what appeared to be only a fuselage of a plane.

In June of 2006 I was in the front yard of my home and looked up and saw, at a low altitude, what appeared to be only the glistening aluminum fuselage of a plane. It was much lower than a large passenger plane or blimp. No sound was heard. It was low enough that I should have been able to see wings, tail and windows but I saw nothing. The sun was shining directly on the object. It saw it twice in June, each time it was around 7:30 (19:30 hrs). The direction of travel was SW to NE. Then I was at a July 4th fireworks display at the Hearnes Center in Columbia, Mo. and the thing came right over where we were sitting. This time it was a round 8:30 (20:30hrs). The direction of travel was about the same as the previous sighting.

I have not seen the object again since July and I have looked. We have one airport and it does not accomodate large planes. Planes going from St. Louis to KC are at a much higher altitude than what I saw. I have seen plenty of small planes pass over my house before but the wings and tail are always easily visible.

I have no idea what I saw nor can I guess. I just offer this report up as another oddity of this haunted planet.
