Occurred: 2002-10-19 08:45 Local
Reported: 2002-10-20 08:07 Pacific
Duration: 2min
No of observers: 1

Location: New Orleans, LA, USA

Shape: Unknown

south to north movement, possiblt light reflected from the sun, it appeared to be rotating like on an axis.

at the university of new orleans. 75-80 degrees from directly up(90 degrees) and to the west. this aircraft was travelling from south to north. the sky had alot of clouds, white clouds and 'mostly cloudy'.

what got my attention was that it appeared to me to be rotating as it was moving to the north. every few seconds it appeared that the sun would reflect and the object would 'light up', then it would return to a possibly metallic color. i don't see many aircraft travelling over new orleans in a south to north path.

this object was travelling fast, faster than i think 'normal' aircraft travel. as it would go behind some clouds i would try to project the next place i would seee it. the object each time would get there faster than i had expected.
