White spherical object over Reno Nevada at 18:00 starting just above tree level, over airport then over mountains.

From the 20th floor of the Atlantis Resort a white spherical/oval object was seen just above tree level between Moana & Gentry streets. It was moving slowly at first heading in an easterly directly and over the airport toward the mountains. Speeding up it moved in an erratic motion much faster than an airplane. As it approached the foot of the mountain it gained altitude very quickly and continued its ascent while moving away and continuing to move erratically until it disappeared into a tiny spot. The entire event lasted 3 minutes.
