|Bright, discoid or shallow cone-shaped object in full daylight.
While out taking a walk during the afternoon break at work, I noticed this bright, metallic-looking object moving across the northern sky at a leisurely pace, perhaps a third way of the way up from horizon to zenith. At first I thought it was a helicopter, but as I kept watching I realized its profile was too round and solid.
The sighting lasted the greater part of a minute as it crossed my field of vision from left to right.
Too late, I decided to photograph it and snapped 3 shots with my pocket camera. In the last photo the object presents a different profile and is seen juxtaposed above an airliner. It disappeared from view moments thereafter.
