It was a flat black cylinder that dropped into my view looking east across okanagan lake. the cylinder traveled slowly across the lake in my general direction then flying just to the south of me when it went out of site behind trees and over the ridge. the object was within 800m to 1km from me at the nearest. it was as few as 500 meters to the south and only a few hundred meters above the trees and ridge as it traveled west to north west into a slight wind. the cylinder was maybe 10 to 12 meters long and 1.5 meter diameter, like a large silent flying black pipe. it was a summer day, partly cloudy, good visibility, mid-day experience. i decided to report it after getting curious and looking into youtube videos where i did see some very similar encounters with what looks like the same cylinder object.
