Silver disk seen in Burbank, CA 1/16/2007 at 5:50 pm PST

I was using my telescope to look at the star Betelgeuse, part of the Orion constellation at 5:50 pm when I saw a disk shape come into my lens from right to left flying very quickly, faster than anything I have seen in the sky, except maybe a meteor. But this disk had no trail, it was silver colored and flat, not like a saucer.

The location was just a degree or two above Betelegeuse.
