|I was driving down East Glenn Dr. towards Faithion P. Lucas and noticed a very large round silver white object. At first I quickly thought the moon was EXTREMLY close to the earth. Then I realized it was not the moon. The object seemed to glow but did not put out any light. I kept looking around for someone else and no one was around, anywhere. It was a very calm night. As I approached Faithion P. Lucas and turned right I was head to head with the object. I was afarid so I stopped my car. I didn't want to go past the object. I didn't move at all. The object was very large approx. 5 yards across and perfectly round. It was about 5 yards off the ground. I was about 15 yards away from the object so I got a VERY close look at the sphere. Suddenly, the object took off in an upward arch south and disappeared into space without making a sound. It moved at the speed of light! I was stunned.
I mentioned this incident to a few co-workers and one told me a local news channel had several calls concerning a UFO in the Mesquite area and reported it was a (I love this part) weather balloon. Last time I checked weather balloons did not move at the speed of light!!
