Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 seconds
Glowing silver-blue sphere which vanished

I went outside in the early morning/late night, to have a cigarette. I walked out a ways and went to a tree ((deleted)) and looked up at the sky and saw a slow moving, glowing blue sphere.

I couldn't gauge distance, or size. It was moving slower than an airplane, but it wasn't an airplane, or a helicopter, because there was no sound and the lights were different than that. It wasn't a satellite because there was clouds that would block view of satellites.

I watched it for five seoncds then thought, "Just what the hell is that?" Right then it stopped, glowed a litttle brighter, and then vanished.

I stood around for a few minutes hoping to see it again. Then the hair on my body stood up and i thought I heard sounds like wind in two different points approx thirty yards out in the woods and got scared and went inside.

((NUFORC Note: May have been the characteristic flare from an Iridium satellite. We are not certain that this report is intended as a serious account. PD))
