Cigar shaped craft in high heavens bewilders mother and son.

My mom and I were watching my younger brother's soccer game when somehow we both looked up toward the sky at the same time and saw a cigar shaped brown object moving slowly through the sky at the cruising altitude of an airplane. Staring at it for a few seconds, we noticed an undulating heat wavelike emanating from it. One second, it would have appeared to be straight but then began to enter the wavelike stage. Then a soccer ball flew between our heads and I ran to pick it up. Then, after only about five seconds of not looking at it, I turned my head toward the same place and it was gone. No military aircraft or device of this earth could have been traveling so slowly and then accelerated to a speed so quickly that it could have disappeared from the heavens.
