Glowing white...round shape as viewed form ground directly below......elongated at sides when viewed from end at distance.........no other lights other than objects glow. If you took a fifties car full wheelcover and placed it with the flat end toward the ground.and the "domed " end toward the sky....and viewed it from a distance.........that would be the shape as the object as it appeared to speed off west. The "dome "was not that pronounced though. It tipped from side to side slightly when it was speeding west.

Full Description & Details
I was 13 Years old hanging Christmas lights at approximately 7pm that evening with my father . As I handed him a string of lights to hang on the gutter of the house, A bright fast moving light caught the corner of my eye coming from due East to due West...I was able to focus my vision on it at about 90 degrees overhead and watched it silently dart westward at low altitlude at a very high rate of speed. It "trimmed "its flight side to side as it sped westward, as was gone from site within 2 seconds of the initial sighting. The cloud cover was very low that night. The object was probably within 500 feet of the ground.I asked my father if he had seen it, to which he had replied no.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No Way- I am a building engineer by trade, an avation enthusiest, and quite frankly, I do not believe the US or any other world government could possess this technology 39 years later.
2 year Degree in Law Enforcement with experience in same.Trained as a first responder and firefighter . Married 28 years with 2 grown children.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
No belief in UFOs as a child till this sighting at age 13. I have always believed since then.
