I was in my backyard I was oriented East. It was partly cloudy that day. I was going back into my house when an object caught my eye.
From my perspective it was about 30degrees above the horizon .It appeared to be a dark colored object, the shape of a crystal .It was not Black, rather a blackish/greenish hue. Lighter on the front flat facet possibly due to the sun in the west. Otherwise it had no lights or markings. Straight sides with the top and bottom coming to a point.
I watched the object for approximately 30 seconds. I studied it thinking it may have been a drone or balloon. I watched the object in the sky and it remained perfectly still I was using 2 treetops as reference. At this point I realized this object was something different. I quickly looked for my phone to take a picture.
Once I got it opened up and ready the object was gone. I could see no trace, but I took 2 quick pics in succession just incase. Later, using a picture processing app on my phone I was able to zoom in. I scanned around the image and afaint black dot high in the atmosphere. This dot is on both pics and appears to change shape.
