London Jul 12th 2009 13:00 black cylinder

Went outside to have a cigarette just before the F1 grand prix started on TV. Object came over the rooftop to my south, travelling west to east, constant speed, black non reflective cylinder (drum proportions), long length vertical. Continued watching until it was hidden by rooftops. Weather was bright sunlight with strong south north wind.

Could not scale or guess speed due to lack of reference, however I guess 2 metres high minumum or bigger. Flight path was between and against City airport takeoff path and the SE London holding pattern for LHR.
