Shape: Cigar
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
I saw a silver cigar in a clear blue sky over Marietta, GA.

My husband and I were driving north on Johnson Ferry Road at about 2:20 in the afternoon. I was on the passenger side and looked east out the window into the clear blue spring sky. Due east, at about 45 degrees, I saw what looked like a silver airplane with no wings (just a silver tube). The sky around it shimmered in kind of a circular pattern. It didn't seem to be moving at all, and there was no sound. After watching a couple of minutes, I wondered why I couldn't see the wings. I'm slightly nearsighted (20/40) so I put on my glasses to see it better. It looked the same - still no wings. I watched about another 30 seconds or so; then it disappeared as I watched. It didn't get smaller like it was going away, nor did it go behind a cloud. It just kind of clicked off. I told my husband that I think I just saw a UFO. We got home about 5 minutes later. After a couple of minutes, I heard military jets overhead. I don't know if the two events were connected. (Don't know if they scrambled to chase or if the jets were coincidentally there a couple minutes later.)
