agree... bird strike.!!
for example... when flying at very high altitudes (some birds have been spotted flying as high as 40,000 feet or more), birds can be highly reflective
and, when wet, even appear to glisten like metal, giving them an “artificial” or metallic appearance. Additionally, bits of tin foil or panels of
corrugated metal driven skyward by high winds and strong updrafts, falling chunks of ice broken off from a high altitude airliner, and other bits of
aerial flotsam can also take on a silvery sheen and appear quite luminescent, making them occasional candidates for flying disks.
