Shape: Cross
Duration: 2 minutes
Transparent cross shaped object at high altitude caught glare from sun and vanished seconds later

While working in the yard this afternoon I happened to look up at our second floor window, above which i seen an object in the sky that appeared semi transparent, its shape was similar to a small aircraft with no tail section but it looked as if it was made of glass.

After sighting the object it moved in a way that caught glare from the sun making it more detailed for a second or two. I was able to see what appeared to be internal beams along the longer rectangular section and then it faded away and I lost sight of it.

The object was very high up I would guess between 15 and 20 thousand feet up.

The sky was perfectly clear not even high clouds.
