I saw a tiny silver thread high in the air late yesterday afternoon. I shot it with 300 mm. This is what it looked like (cropped and original). (Of course I don't really know how high this was).

This airliner was nearby. I include it for comparison.

That is really

cool, Don. Was it moving? If so, was it fast, slow?

I assume it appeared to be pretty high.

Someone suggested it was an escaped cylindrical mylar balloon. That makes good sense.
