Location: Janesville, WI
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:2 minutes
Stationary, solid, white cylinder floating 20-40 feet above a building.

Saw a white cylindrical object with a dark band around the middle (possibly an indented band with the dark coloring being shadow). Was floating above a store, saw it while I was driving. Watched it for maybe two minutes until I'd gone too far to see it anymore. When I first saw it I saw it from the front, directly ahead of me, and saw that it was cylindrical in shape. As I got farther I saw it was round on the side, confirming the cylindrical shape. It stayed completely stationary. Somewhat windy day, NW 11 mph. 8 degrees outside and nearly completely clear skies. The object was maybe 20-40 feet above the building, can't remember what store. I think it was on Black Bridge Road, perhaps.

I was a little too shocked to take photos or even mention it to the other passengers unfortunately, but I will email illustrations.

Observer background: I grew up in Wisconsin. I was previously a mechanical engineering student in Boston, Massachusetts, now I'm an illustration student in Missouri.
