Shape: Cigar
Duration: Approximately 1 minute
It was a partly cloudy day. I was returning from a drive to Ludington, Michigan.

I was at a traffic light waiting for it to change when I saw a white cigar shaped craft high above the clouds heading in an easterly direction. I expressly looked for any type of wings to determine if it was a plane, but there wasn't any.

I drove my vehicle over to the nearest gas station and got out. The object I observed was now heading south and vanished behind some cloud cover.

There were no trails of smoke or sound from the craft.

I was really suprised nobody else saw this.
