Location: Metz, WV
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 2 min
Cigar shaped no wings or tail. no sound or contrail. Disappeared.

On July 27, 2010 at approximately 19:30 my roommates and I were sitting on our front porch. My motherís boyfriend, noticed something gliding through the sky. The object was noticed in the eastern sky flying in a SSW direction. We had visual observation of the craft for about 5 minutes before it faded out of sight.

The craft was a silver cigar shape with a dark band in the middle. I could not make out any wings or a tail. It was completely silent, and there was no contrail. I live in the hills. Most planes go out of sight over a hill, but unlike most airplanes I see, this did not go over the horizon out of sight. Rather, the object seemed to get smaller and smaller, until it was no longer visible.

There was a sense of confusion upon realizing all the strange attributes of this craft. I managed to remember to grab my camera and I was able to capture several photos on a Nikon D-3000 DSLR camera.
