|Silent, disk-shaped object observed floating, flipping end-over-end in broad daylight for about 15 minutes
I was taking my kids to school around 9am. As we pulled into a parking lot near 125th and Antioch, my daughter asked what that was in the sky. I looked up and saw a disk shaped object flipping end over end floating slowly across the sky. We stopped the car and got out.
We watched the object for 10-15 minutes. It flipped end over end slowly and moved as if floating like a balloon from east-south-east to west-north-west. It almost seemed dormant and non-deliberate if not for the fact it was floating opposite the direction of the wind. There were no sudden movements in any direction besides the flipping end over end and sideways. As it twisted and turned slowly, there were times it turned in such a way I could see the profile of the object. It was very, very thin so it was obviously not air filled and buoyant, but rather afloat due to something other than light or hot air. It was shiny and metallic. On one side of the object when in full view like looking down at a plate sitting flat on a table, it had three circles in a triangular pattern. Because I had no idea how big it was I couldn’t tell how high up in the air it was floating. It appeared to be about the same size as if you held a silver dollar in your outstretched hand. It was completely silent, made no sound at all.
As we watched the object float toward the west, I noticed a second one nearby that I had not noticed before, probably because I was so fixated on the first object, afraid it would disappear if I turned away. The two objects appeared to be spinning and flipping in tandem.
Because I was with my 6 year old daughter and 2 year old son and seemed to be the only adult seeing the object which was very clearly large enough to see, I was shouting at anyone I could find in the same parking lot to just get confirmation that what we were seeing was real and get their instinct on what it was. A few people saw it and said things like “what is that?” None of us could figure any other explanation because it was silent, metal and obviously not floating because it was full of air.
