Location: Tampa, FL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 seconds
Lightless,soundless sphere glides over tampa, 1:30 Sunday morning, Nov 18.

I had crossed Henderson Blvd. about 1 mile south of Kennedy, I looked up into the eastern sky to see if I could find any meteors, the news reported they could be seen in the E-NE that night. A sphere was about 300-500 ft. up, it was glidding parallel to Henderson Blvd., it looked about the size of a beach ball, no lights, no sound, people across the street in in Walgrens parking lot did not seem to notice it. I was in Army Aviation 8 years and have not seen anything like it. I could make out its shape from the light that was reflecting off it, surface from the city below, it could of been very dimmly illuminated,but I don't think so, it glidded SSE and seemed to ascend as it went out of veiw, it moved the same speed the whole time watched, it took 30 seconds to move about 35-45 degrees toward the SSE. I have never seen anything like this
