|Large silver object appears in clear sky, then vanishes as though suddenly sucked away
I am a grade school librarian with no background in science.
I was driving North from the Stafford Basin, when a full view of sky suddenly revealed an object straight in front of me which appeared to be spinning. It was flat, metallic, circular, full of light. It almost seemed transluscent, like those "sailor of the wind" jellyfish that appear on the Oregon Coast from time to time.
As I drove my car out onto the road from a wooded area, the image assumed a pencil shape, still silvery. I might have thought for just a moment that it was a plane, that I had misinterpreted somehow what I first saw, but within perhaps 15 seconds (?) of my first sighting, it was suddenly sucked away at enormous speed and vanished utterly --UTTERLY-- from the horizon.
The sky was clear and wide open to my view, and there was nothing in it to see.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and she sounded to us to be quite serious-minded and credible. PD))
