|Sphear, white with concave and convex "windows" daylight with binoculars
In North Shores, Rehoboth Beach Delaware, In daylight, about 2 to 3 PM, seen through binoculars, beautiful stationary sphere glowing from the sun hitting it from west, looking up about 70 degrees almost due north. I saw no lights and no sound. I was tracking an osprey with my binoculars when all of a sudden I saw in the clear blue sky a craft, partially hidden on the bottom in a mist or cloud layer. It seemed to be oval or round in shape and with the sun hitting it I could see what I can only describe as a skin of "airplane windows", concave and convex, rectangle in shape, that were all over it, all pure white except for the bright gold-orange of the sun hitting it on the West side and a light to darkish blue on the sides of the "windows" that were in the shadow. The entire thing had a dull sheen, like plastic. I could not tell if it was incredibly large or small, but I assume since I could not see it with the naked eye it was small. It did not appear to be moving because I did not have to track it with my binoculars. I said "what it that?" My young son was there and I took the binoculars away and looked at the sky but saw nothing, nor did my son. I looked back into the binoculars and saw the craft again and it slowly disappeared behind the mist or cloud. I was about to hand the binoculars to my son when that happened. All together I observed this for a total of one minute. To give an idea to its size looking through binoculars it would be the same size as a full moon looking through binoculars. I called the police to see if any one else had reported it. They said no. This was a completely cloudless day overhead except for some low lying clouds over the New Jersey side of the ocean. I first reported this sometime in late Aug. or Sept. 1994 to Center for UFO Studies, CUFOS and they took my information by phone and sent a form to fill out. The form envelope was dated October 18, 19 94. I chickened out about reporting it, and since have forgotten the exact date, although I know it! was Lat e July or early August. I am an artist so I did a water color of what I saw, but I cannot show the "beautiful glow" this craft had. The closest reported sighting like mine seems to be the Columbus Ohio spear on 6-15-1994.
