Location: Falcon, CO
Shape: Changing
Duration:30 seconds
White daytime object observed, changed shape and continued to climb out of sight, first fast then slowed then fast again.

Doing yard work, clear (some clouds) sunny afternoon. Took a break and looked up, saw what looked like an all white sheet of paper traveling at high speed over my head approximate size of a quarter at arms length. Object was heading almost due west.

Object changed shape to an imperfect boomerang shape as it slowed way down, then it changed to an imperfect triangular shape with rounded corners. Continued to slow down to a crawl as it got much, much smaller. I am assuming it was climbing very fast not just getting smaller but it appeared to get smaller. Then it appeared to be a perfect round all white dot from below as it came to almost a complete stop at a very high altitude. It may have been a white sphere but there was no dimension, no shadow. It began to speed up again and went near to the sun (from my vantage point). I covered the sun with my left hand and could still see the white dot quite clearly two to three inches from the sun. It then got smaller and smaller until it was almost out of sight. It then appeared as if a dark area was surrounding it in a larger flat circle, but this was very faint, just prior to it climbing out of my sight. What is odd are the feelings I got when observing this object. First off, it had no apparent dimension, no shadows against itself as you see with an aircraft, it was like a cartoon cell image in the sky yet it was there, not an illusion or a reflection. Secondly, it was traveling in a manner that it seemed that our atmosphere was neither aiding it nor preventing it from climbing out of sight at an incredible rate, again like watching a cartoon. It was not following the rules that we have to follow in our atmosphere. Thirdly, when it did slow down and speed up, it appeared as if it was being pulled from behind to slow it down and again pulled from the front to speed it up. This is just a feeling I got, I cannot expalin it. It moved in a manner that I have never seen. I am a commercially rated helo pilot and have been to a lot of air sh! ows and NEVER seen anything move like this. If we have this kind of craft, why are we still using primitive fighters and bombers? The whole sighting lasted 30 seconds. It was completely silent.
