Duration:20 sec.
Caller was driving east on I-20, and at Mile Marker #120, he observed a silver-colored, metallic-appearing, "opal shaped" object in the sky. It was 15 degrees to the draver's right, and 30 degrees above the horizontal, and it was hovering totally motionless.

The object clearly appeared to be rotating, and it occasionally would reflect sunlight, as if it had a flat side on it.

The observer pulled off the highway and stopped. As he was watching it, the object instantly just disappeared.

The caller was trained in the military in photo analysis, and perhaps other specialties. He was very precise in his description, using very unambiguous terms, and the proper use of angles, rather than distances. Also, he served in the UN forces in 1979 with the Peace Keeping Mission, arising out of the Camp David Accords.
