Location: Indianapolis, IN
Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 seconds
Highly metalic sphere appeared from contrail and then went back in and out of view.

At 5:45pm 09-07-2003 I was traveling east-bound in my car on I-70 about 3 miles East of Indianapolis. I saw a round highly metallic Sphere to the North of me and from my position my line of sight was about 70-degree angle. The Shiny silver ball which I estimate the diamater to be 3-5 feet at about 2000-feet high. The object appeared to my sight as it left a persistant contrail it came from. The sphere traveled about 100-feet from the contrail and then stopped and reversed direction back into the persistant contail. The sphere was visible for approx. 5-seconds. This was no aircraft or balloon nor anything eles in my minds rolodex. This object moved with intent and purpose.
