Summary : White, spherical object moving in a NW trajectory, silent, moving extremely fast.

On March 10, 1997,went outside after lunch for a brief walk.Cloudless, clear day. Looked up and noticed a single, very white, round objectmoving from east to northwest (this is a coastal area of VA). At first thought itwas baloon, but quickly realized moving much too fast and straight. No vapor,exhaustor noise whatsoever. When first observed, appeared to be about the size of a shirtbutton held at arm's length. Disappeared within 8-10 seconds.This area is close to Naval air stations; very familiar with various conventionalcraft. Nothing like this seen before. Was very round and bright white.I am a 46 year-old health care executive. Am MUFON member (recently joined); have beeninterested in the phenomenon for decades, and well read on subject, but maintain a sceptical yet open mind.Inclined to favor a more scientific, empirical approach.This was definitely NO conventional craft!
