Summary:    White cigar shaped object traveling at high rate of speed

On 7/11/11 at 1:16 pm eastern standard time I was driving northbound on I-75 approx halfway between Atlanta, Ga. and Chattanooga, Tn. I observed a white cigar shaped object at an approx altitude of 2,000 ft and a quarter mile in front of my vehicle. I estimate the object to have been approx 100-150 ft long, no markings, windows, wings, vertical stabilizer or any type of trail left behind it. The object was rounded off the same on both ends, not tapered as the nose on an aircraft would be. I am a pilot and very familiar with all types of aircraft. The object traveled from as far as I could see to my right (possibly 10 miles) to as far as I could see to my left (possibly 5 miles) in 3-5 seconds. The object was traveling on a straight trajectory and was going east to west. The speed of this object well exceeded the normal operating speeds of jet aircraft that you normally see in the sky.

There was no haze in the sky so I did get a very good look at the object in the short time I had. My first thought was of U.S. ships launching cruise missiles during the Gulf War. The object looked similar to the cruise missiles as they were cruising over the ground en-route to their targets.
