This event occurred during and after the solar eclipse on 8/21/2017 this object caught my eye as i was taking photographs of the eclipse. i captured several good images with use of the digital zoom and a tripod. an aircraft was passing the same area during the sighting but i was unable to capture both the airplane and object in the same frame due to the speed of the aircraft. the object appeared to move slowly in a southwesterly direction and the sighting was lost when the object went beyond the line of sight. attempts to view from a different angle were not successful as i believe the object moved away at a greater speed, but this was not viewed or confirmed. there was no sound from the object, unlike the engine noise from the jet that passed. this was not a balloon, as the dimensions were rigid and there were no observable payloads.
