Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 min
A giant silver sphere appeared over the trees while I was fishing. The size was twice the size of any full moon.As I was rationalizing what it could be it blinked out.

I was fishing with my father in law on Lake Arrowhead in Maine. I was fixated on a spot above the tree line while working my lure along the bottom feeling for a bite. I was facing East, the sun was behind me. A gigantic silver sphere just appeared out of thin air.It was at least the size of several full moons.In fact my first impression was it could have been a 2nd sun. As I was rationalizing was it was not;Blimp,ballon,aircraft,new moon,it just blinked out.Outside to center. As I was watching the sphere it seemed to come closer and I started to see details of an electro-mettalic surface. It could have been reflecting the sun.
