I witnessed a large brilliant white tapered cylinder shape, with a dark (black band?) on forward section or nose (tapered at the tail end, blunt front end). The object was descending at a speed I would estimate to be around 400/500km an hour at an angle of around 40 degrees at approximately 9-30am. My first reaction was that it was a light aircraft, but it was moving way too fast, and it made absolutely no sound at all. It had no wings or control surfaces, and the angle of descent and speed was very surreal and unnatural with regards to civil aircraft. I lost sight of it when it dipped below the tree line. I would estimate the distance between the object and myself at not closer than 2km; I could be way off as I did not see anything behind it to give me a good reference point, but it was close enough for me to see a fair amount of detail on the object.
This sighting took place in the suburb of Matsheumhlope Bulawayo Zimbabwe 9-30am on Sunday morning 8th of Feb 2015. The whole sighting lasted about 5-10 seconds. Ive included an image I drew up in photoshop to give you an idea of angle shape and banding of the object I witnessed.
