Close encounter of the third kind

On May 31st, 2003 around 13:00 as I was getting ready for work, I had gone outside to a tree in our backyard to stretch my back by grabbing a large branch and hang from it.

I looked down to make sure that my feet were off the ground. Seeing that I was clear of the ground, I then looked up towards the branch.

There between my hands and my face and the branch was a small - about the size of my pinkie - cigar shaped object. It was chrome colored but seemed to have a light smoke tint to it. I stared at the object feeling the more I did perhaps I could see into it. I could not.

When I thought of reaching out to touch it - the object - it moved away from me through the leaves silently and left my sight.

I have not seen it since.
