Shape: Cigar
Duration:4-5 minutes
Silent white capsule-shaped object seen over Lawrenceville, GA

I was out walking, about 7:30 in the evening, but there was still plenty of daylight. A flock of birds caught my attention, and behind the flock of birds, in the distance, I see what I originally thought was an airplane. I watched it, not because it was doing anything interesting, but because it was in my line of sight.

As it came closer, I couldn't see any wings, and so continued to watch it, to see if it was jet plane, or a propeller plane, whatever... just idle curiosity. So I watch this thing coming closer to me, which is completely silent, by the way, and notice as it gets closer that there's no wings, no tail... no nothing.

It looked like a white Tylenol gelcap, complete with a thick black seam down the middle.

I stop walking completely at this point, this thing has my full attention now. It's to the south of me, and passes at a slight diagonal from my left to my right (east-by-southeast to north-by-northwest), moving at a pretty good clip, not mak! ing any turns...still silent...steady speed and altitude and then disappears behind some trees.

SOMEWHERE within that 4-5 minutes while I was watching it, and my viewpoint changed as it moved, I should have seen wings or a tail. Or a cockpit, or windows. I see nothing, except the black seam in the middle of it. I realize I should have taken a picture with my cell phone, but by the time my brain kicks in and tells me that that really ISN'T a plane I'm looking at, it's already over the trees to my west and it's too late.

So now I'm looking for fighter jets flying after it, or Fox Mulder lurking in the bushes, but nothing.

It was no zeppelin, the shape was wrong and it moved too quickly.
