Saucer-like object seen passing by downtown Morgantown

I was in a classroom and happened to look out the window just at the moment a spacecraft-looking object passed by. It was moving at what I would call a normal velocity for an airplane (i.e. did not zip by). It was moving in such a way that it passed by all the windows in the classroom, so I had about 30 seconds to look closely at the object. At first I thought it was an airplane, but did not see any wings or tail; the object looked just like a saucer or the generic idea of what a UFO might look like. I honestly couldn't believe my eyes and kept watching as it passed by, looking intently because I expected to recognize it as an airplane.

I'm terrible at gauging distances, but the object seemed close enough to where I would have expected to hear some noise from the jets, were it an airplane. I did not hear anything. The lack of tail was especially puzzling and I'm still convinced the object was not an airplane.
