2 cylindrical flying craft, with no sound and no contrails.

Tonight, while planting cukes, my son says, "Hey look, Dad! What is that bright light in the sky?" No sound, and no contrail... Then he said, "Hey look, there's another one!"

I sent him running for the camera and caught a few pictures of the second one. Not long after that, a jet (with a contrail) could be seen chasing after them.

The objects were moving East NorthEast, right at sunset set so there may have been some distortion with the sun's reflection. However, upon zooming in with my 16 megapixel camera, there was no glare. The sun was just below the horizon behind me when I took the pictures. There were no clouds in the sky where these object passed by. The duration was only about 5 minutes.

The object must have been a long ways up as the image pixels start to distort the object some when really zoomed in. Before the image gets too distorted, the object's body can be described as horizontally cylindrical and gray metallic color. There are no strobe lights as most aircraft have. The tail section has a bulge on the upper side and the tail wings are attached to the side and top of the cylinder body, like a missile.

There is a strange black object on the underside. In one picture, the black object is under the nose, while in another, the black object is under the mid section. It is very hard to say that the object has wings, but there is a different coloration at the mid section of the object. While the rear of the object is in generally good focus so you might say it has tail wings, It is strange that the objects wings at the mid point of the craft are not clear.


Photo provided by witness suggests to us an airliner, flying at a low altitude, and in level flight. PD
