Location: Indianapolis, IN
Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 3 min
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
I noticed two airplanes following pretty close to one another in a straight line heading south/southeast at around 1:00pm on October 30th during a bright sunny day.

Both planes were leaving smoke trails through the sky as they moved. I grabbed a pair of binoculars to get a closer view since I never see two planes traveling so close together.

As I was veiwing the planes I noticed this object moving perpindicular in a downward motion away from the planes. At first I thought maybe they dropped something or that maybe I'm seeing a satelite moving in space?

The object was a silver cylinder with a bright flourescent blue round top. It reminded me of a wand or staff. It was kind of moving back a forth as it appeared to move down away from the planes.

I've never seen anything like it before. I'm thinking it may of been a satellite, but it was to big in comparison to the planes I think to be a satelite, plus I don't know if I would be able to see a satelite that well being that they are higher up outside the atmosphere.

It was definately weird..!! Possibly a UFO?
