Duration:Above the Metrodome
The round object above the Metrodome.

It was the day of the last yankee vs. twins game at the metrodome is when my uncle cought my attention to the sky. What appeared to be right above us (between a 85-75 degree angle from where we were standing) was a white, sort of round object in the sky. Ifigured it was a weather ballon or a star, but it was just an hour before the game started in broad day light. We had brought binoculors and i look to see what it was, it was tremendously high, much higher than the plane that past by, so it was up there, then i thought it was a sattle light, but ive seen satlites in the sky, but only when it was really dark, this was large enough to see during the day. A few other people saw it also, i let them look throught the binoculors also, they didnt know what it was. But it just was in one spot for the longest time, then after a while, it was move, but very slowly.

As i keeped looking into the binoculars, just wonerding what it was, it appeared to be round, it was hard to tell it it was moving in any way, but i noticed a dark spot in the middle, my uncle descibed it as a donut shaped object, and it was clearly shinny in the binoculars reflecting the suns light or something.

The last i saw of it was when we went into the dome, it moved from the place from where we first saw it to a good distance if you put your pointer finger sidways torwards the sky, it moved the length of your pointer finger (mine is around 3 inches). It was amazing to see, then my unckle told me about this site and that other people witnessed it!! So i hope my information was helpful.
