Location: Martinez, GA
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 3 minutes
My son and I were in our backyard and saw a long, cigar-shaped object with no wings, sound,or exhaust fly through the sky like a plane.

My son and I were in our back yard. It was 19:30, so the sun was setting, but there was still plenty of light. We saw what we thought was an airplane flying over. It was flying fairly low, an we realized that it had no wings. We continued to watch it "disappeared" behind the trees(it did not disappear, but flew into an area where we could no longer see it). The body of the craft was cigar-shaped, but had a divot near the front that seemed to extend around its entire diameter. There was no exhaust or trail extending behind it, and it made no noise. It looked to be about the size of a large, jet airplane. I am not sure how far up in the sky it was flying, but it was low enough to see some details. It appeared to be a shiny, aluminum color.
