Shape: Cylinder
Duration:15 minutes
Walking dog in the day and saw a silent and still chrome cylindrical object in the sky.

It's taken me a while to work up the will to let this out I never even told my family or friends. Anyways I was walking my dog in my neighborhood when i was about 13 and glanced up in the sky. What I saw about 500 yards (guessing) away was a vertical chrome cylinder shaped craft of some kind with rounded ends just perfectly still and silent in the air. Nothing human made can do this. It was a clear sunny day I just turned my eyes back to where I was going and kept walking and ignored it but after about 5 seconds then it made me curios and I looked again and it was still there I stopped walking and watched it for about 15 minutes. It never moved just hung in the sky motionless the entire time. Then a truck came up the road and I was forced to move when I looked back up about 30 seconds later after the truck passed it was gone. I absolutely could not find it in the sky and looked for about 5 minutes then walked home. I then went on my deck of my house and looked for it for about a half an hour and could not find it. I have always wondered what it was and never talked to anyone about it. People just call you crazy for this stuff. But I know what I saw and it still is in my mind today. Figured you may be able to use this info.
