Duration: 4 seconds
White cylinder object that disappeared in an open sky.

On 08/14/19 at about 7:00 pm, I saw what looked like a plane with no wings flying North, kind of low in the sky. About the height a propeller plane would fly (below cloud height). I didnít see any lights and the object looked to be pure white and the length of any commercial plane.

It did not have a vapor trail and I saw it through tree tops so it disappeared from my view very quickly. I thought it was a jet at first but what caught my attention was that it was so low for this area. There is no commercial airport nearby. I quickly realized it had no wings and was just a cylinder or cigar shape. I heard nothing which I thought was strange based on the height it was flying .

As soon as it flew behind some leaves (about 4-5 seconds after I first saw it), I ran around the trees to a wide open area to make sure of what I was seeing. Maybe 25 feet on the ground and then there was nothing blocking my view. It only took maybe another 3 or 4 seconds to get to the clear area. I was shocked that it was gone. Nothing at all in the sky. No vapor trail. It was way to far below the clouds to have gone behind them or into them. It was not traveling anywhere near fast enough to have disappeared. I even waited a couple of minutes to see if I was missing something. I have no idea where it went and the fact that it disappeared like that is why I am looking into this further.

I went online to see if anyone else saw it and that is how I came upon this website, I would really like to find out more information and see if anyone else saw this or something of a similar circumstance? Iím pretty skeptical about these things, but I am very confused about what this could have been? I know for sure I saw the object. It could see how I could possibly misidentify an object but I could not have misplaced it in that time frame.
