A very bright capsule shaped object high in the sky was seen by my wife and me as we drove along the Mount Rose pass catching our atten

My wife and I were vacationing at Lake Tahoe from Sunday August 7th through Friday, August 12th and traveled daily over the Mount Rose Pass from Reno, NV to Incline Village and spent the days at Sand Harbor Beach. On one of the very first trips up Mount Rose a little over half way to the summit we both spotted a very bright object to our left high in the sky. I saw it only for an instant because I was driving but my wife saw it for a few seconds and had brought it to my attention. The road was serpentine and had a steep grade up so I was forced to pay attention to the wheel; but my wife continued watching the object that seemed to be suspended in the air. I took quick glances at it and it could not have been an airplane. As we came around another bend to take a better look at the mysterious object it was no where to be seen. It seemed large and very high in the sky like a capsule type pill and in the air it looked the size of a finger section (tip of your pi! nky). It disappeared from the sky after we had gone around another bend and we saw it no more.
