Location: Lafayette, KY
Shape: Sphere
Duration:30 sec.
Fast moving Metallic Sphere - movements were impossible for balloon of aircraft to execute.

My Wife were riding approx. 20mph southwest on Roaring Springs Rd. at 4:00pm. clear afternoon not windy.About 500 ft. out in front of us - approx. 100 ft. up we saw a shiney metal ball that looked about 5 ft. dia. from that distance. It was hovering still, than began moving slow at first, then it moved downward in arch toward the ground, increasing in speed, then it shot straight up vertically at a speed that is just impossible by todays aircraft.Both of us were in shock and saying "What the hell is that". The Ball or sphere was bright silver. THIS WAS NOT A WEATHER BALLOON. We live close to Ft. Campabell Ky. We saw this in a area on the perimeter of the military reservation. We have shared our experience with friends and family. Some are in the military. Nothing conventional fits what we saw. WE have just watched the show on the history channel 6-11-03 about the sightings in mexico. Some of the objects (balls) shown were like what we saw and this is what prompted me to list our sighting. Thank you
