Shape: Sphere
Duration:8 minutes
looked like a star during full daylight--cloudless day. seemed high up, not really moving much

i was driving back from lunch. beautiful, cloudless sky, little or no wind. in the northern sky i saw what looked like the front (bright white) headlight of an airplane. then the light seemed to "shimmer" as if it was maybe the reflection off of some shiny metal. but it kept "shimmering" and more brightly than i think metal can shimmer. i was very close to my office so i was able to not wreck my car as i watched it. i stopped in the parking lot and watched it for a solid 5 minutes. when it was not "lit", it seemed to be grayish. i can't tell you it was a sphere, but it was round. it was almost straight overhead for the whole time. one of the reasons i kept looking at it (aside from the brighness in full daylight) was i was thinking that if it was an airplane, why wasn't it moving? if it was a helicopter, it's WAY higher than i've ever seen one fly. it also really looked round. it actually looked like a bright star when i first saw it. of course when i got back to the office there was no one around. no smokers or anything.
