A very interesting near miss claimed by Airbus pilot recently. The pilot reported this incident to UK Airprox board which investigates near misses. I will note that investigators failed to find any unidentified aircraft in the area, but still this is an interesting sighting in my opinion:

Sure. At an altitude of 34.000ft. Troposphere parrots maybe?

Nice description:

Nice find.

It is clear you didn't read doc linked in the article. Who are they?

His immediate reaction was to duck to the right and reach over to alert the FO; there was no time to talk to alert him. The FO turned and looked at him, thinking something was wrong with the aircraft. [...] His first words to the FO were, "did you see that", who replied, "see what".
[bolding mine]

Does the above mean copilot saw it as well? Thats how anecdotes are born: he becomes they...

And later on we find:

Quote

Although supposition, members opined that this may have been due to a combination of a possible reflection from the low sun off one of the aircraft to the West, and of the pilot's head movement as he looked forward. After some discussion it was decided that, although the reflection theory held some merit, the overall dearth of information relating to the event rendered a meaningful finding impossible.

Heard of afterimage? Google it.

Seriously though, if only he was wearing  glasses with slow-motion lenses...

Sometimes when Im parked at traffic lights, from the corner of my eye I suddenly get the unnerving sensation Im rolling backward.... but it is an illusion caused by other vehicles edging forwards .

Pilots are just as susceptible to this type of mind drift.

I love how people still equate the "cigar UFO" with aliens.  It's been debunked for quite some time now.

There are a number of cylindrical drone/airship craft developed, and being developed, by defense contractors.
