Posted: 2/1/2007
Location: Parkside, PA
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 20 mins
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Silver object against a very blue sky at very high altitude

During the mid-afternoon, I was in the back yard of my home. The weather was warm and the sky was clear of any clouds. I noticed a jet passenger aircraft crossing the sky from the southeast headed northwest. I could not estimate the altitude but the aircraft was fully visible. As the aircraft moved out of sight, I noticed a silver object in the sky, crossing over the aircraft's flight path and moving from northeast to southwest. The object was at a much greater altitude than was the aircraft and the shape was impossible to make-out, although the closest guess would be round. The object continued to move across the sky and left no contrails or exhaust clouds. I continued to watch the object move off. My home is near the landing pattern for a large international airport and I am used to seeing commercial aircraft of all types on a daily bases, but I did find this sighting as very unusual.It is actually the first time that I have seen something that I must say was unexplainable.
