|noticed a dark stationary object hanging just below the cloud base
Was driving eastbound on Indiana HWY 62 going into work saturday morning approximately 0630 on 4/1/00 when i noticed a dark object with a spericial shape hanging motionless below the cloud base, it was totally overcast that morning. not knowing the height to the clouds can't really give estimate of size, Clouds maybe 1500 to 2500 ft and I was looking at an angle of approx 35 to 40 degrees from horizontal it appeared to be size between index finger not quite covering it to thumb covering it color was not quite black it appeared black with respect to clouds. during the time i observed it, it did not appear to move during the time it took me to drive4 miles and set through 4 traffic light changes, saw it once more after turning on Houge Road through a break in the trees, pulled in the lot at work and could not get an angle on it anymore due to trees in the area, I did have a brief glimpse of it through an 8 x 25 monocular at a traffic light didnt notice anything other than that it might have been in the clouds themselves as it was a little blurred (as having a solid black object and spraying a dusting of white paint on it) didnt notice much else at light changed and got honked at.it was totally stationary angle and position against the clouds remained the same, a plane or a helicoptor would have showed noticable movment in the time span might have been a hot air balloon but would have been awfull early for that. 06;30 on that date would have been 07:30 EST not really sure what it was, sending this in and wondering if others have reported the same object??
