Shining Craft seen in the Columbus, Ohio area. Round in shape no noise about 5000ft above tree level.

At around 1245 on 12.10.06 I walked out on my back porch which faces North to have a cig. The sky was partly cloudy with very clear skies over my home and about 42 degrees.

I stepped out to see a DC9 heading in a westerly direction leaving a good trail behind it flying at about 13000ft. above my home. I looked North to see a Cessna single engine four seater heading in a southerly direction flying at about 2000ft towards Port Columbus Airport.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw a craft coming from the Northeast heading in a Southwesterly direction. I looked at it to see what airplane company it was because of its low flying; about 50000 ft. It was shiny reflecting the sun from the top, no wings, round in shap with no noise.

It was a pretty big craft, almost the size of the DC9 at 13000ft.

I watched it till it sped off quickly into the clouds that were off in the distance to the west.
