Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 seconds
Silently streaked in, did a figure 8 at the same speed and kept going in the same direction.

On 1/16/99, I was standing on my back patio which is nestled between 2 buildings. I have about a 20 degree view of the sky. At approximately 16:00 hours I witnessed an object, round or spherical, glowing what looked like a light neon blue. As it (glided) into my field of view at a high rate of speed, it did what I could only describe as a horizontal figure 8. As it came out of the manuver, it continued in the same direction until out of my view. The speed never seemed to change and the moves were very smooth. All looked very unatural. No sounds were heard and no trails were seen even though other aircraft in the sky were leaving trails.
