I think an even more pertinent question is, did the object move
at all? No mention is made of any motion. If it just "hovered"
there and didn't do anything extraordinary, than I am reluctant
to call it a "UFO" and am inclined to suspect a local solution,
something like a tethered balloon.

I'm not suggesting that as a definitive answer, only an
hypthesis that needs to be explored. Don is right; secret
military technology as a knee-jerk skeptical explanation is
horse manure. But the pilot's size estimates obviously are
guesses based on assuming various distances and even then
assuming a real size. There is no UFO-like performance
indicated, so a local explanation is a reasonable suspect.
