Duration:5 minutes
Silver Orb traveling very slowly across sky

At about 1430 hrs on 5/29/01 I observed a sphere shaped object traveling very slowly(this is what caught my eye) north to south at about 5000 feet. I work outside and being an avid ufo buff I watch the skies as much as possible. I watched the object for about 5 minutes until it went behind some clouds and I lost it. The interesting thing is that while watching the object a commercial plane flew right under or close by it. Due to my angle of vision I could not tell how close. The object was silver in color and a little smaller than the size of a pinky nail at arms length. Also, a I watched the object there seemed to be a haze or unfocusable area around it. No sound, and no light.
