I WAS AT WORK, WENT OUT AT 3:05 PM FOR MY AFTERNOON BREAK. NO ONE ELSE HAD COME OUT FOR BREAK, SO I WAS BY MYSELF. I SAT BACK IN MY CHAIR AND LOOKED UP AT THE CLEAR BLUE SKY. SOEMTHING WHITE CAUGHT MY EYE, IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT IT MIGHT BE A BALLOON THAT HAD BEEN LOST BY A KID SOMEWHERE BUT AS I CONTINUED TO LOOK AT IT I REALIZED IT WAS FURTHER AWAY AND LARGER THAN WHAT A BALOON LOOKS LIKE. I CONTINUED TO LOOK AT IT AND THEN I REALIZED IT WAS MOVING VERY SLOWLY TO THE EAST. (I WAS FACING NE). SOME OTHER PEOPLE CAME OUTSIDE ABOUT THAT TIME (3:08)..I WAS CONSIDERING AASKING ONE OF THEM TO LOOK UP AND TELL ME WHAT THEY THOUGHT IT WAS, BUT WHEN I LOOKED UP AGAIN IT WAS GONE, NOWHERE TO BE SEEN. THE NEXT DAY, I LOOKED AGAIN AT 3:00 PM (AFTERNOON BREAK) AND THERE IT WAS, A LITTLE FURTHER TO THE EAST. IT DIDN'T REMAIN VISIBLE AS SONG MAYBE ONLY ONE MINUTE. NOT A DRAMATIC SIGHTING, I ALMOST DIDN'T BOTHER TO REPORT IT, BUT FOR ALL I KNOW MAYBE OTHERS SAW IT AND REPORTED IT ALSO. THANK YOU PETER DAVENPORT FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION. IT IS MUCH APPRECIATED!!!! IF I HAVE ANY MORE SIGHTINGS, NO MATTER HOW SMALL, YOU WILL BE THE FIRST TO KNOW.
