Location: Opelousas, LA
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:20 seconds
Oblong shape suspended in southern sky to the south and west of Opelousas, Louisiana.

I was driving back home from checking on my farm, when I saw an oblong shape suspended ahead in the southern horizon. I estimate this shape was 8-10 miles away from my position.

I pulled off to the side of the road and observed the shape for 10-15 seconds. It did not move. It was perfectly still, and was at a slight angle in the sky.

After that, drove to my home, approximately 1 mile from where I was parked, to retrieve a pair of binoculars. I could not see the shape from my house due to the trees, so I drove back to the spot I was at. I estimate this took me 4 or 5 minutes. By the time I got back to the position I last saw it, it was not in the sky.
