Shape: Oval
Duration:5-10 seconds
The shiny hovering object sat there, then it was suddenly gone.

I can't recall the date and I unfortunately looked away, so I never got a great look at it. I was driving our car with our son in the back and my wife in the passenger side. We were travelling down Treadway Blvd headed north getting ready to turn at a light onto south 7th street.

My wife had said something and about that time I looked up. Granted we were near the airport, but as an avid aircraft fan, I know a plane and chopper when I see them. This wasn't either. It was oval in shape and just sat there in one spot. It was so shiny that you really couldn't look directly at it because of the sun glinting off of it. From what I could see there were at least three lights situated around the top and a black thin line through the middle as if there were a line of windows.

I turned to my wife and asked her what the thing was, and when she looked she said she didn't see anything. I looked back, and it was gone. there was no way of knowing which direction or anything.

If it hadn't been for ABC's show, I wouldn't have known about this. My wife keeps laughing at me saying I have lost it. Hopefully there are more people in this area that saw this. It makes me feel so alone.
