In the early morning hours of saturday july 18th i stepped out my front door and immediate saw a very large glowing cylinder in the sky to my east. it was casting a golden light, with faint blue around it's edges, and it was low in the sky but above the treetops.. it was standing on end. i observed it for more than 20 minutes and it didn't move. i attempted to take pictures of it, but they only show a white ball. it was not the comet as it was right straight east of me. it wasn't a balloon because it was still dark outside, and it never moved. i have no idea what i saw, so i am reporting it here.
